Donald trump, former president of the United States, was awarded late last week with the most difficult belt to obtain in martial arts: the black belt in taekwondo.

Some people take decades. Others do not have enough life to achieve it. Peror Donald Trump was enough to be a great fan of taekwondo to receive this honorable black belt.

It is an honor for me to receive the honorary dan certificate and I believe that taekwondo is a magnificent martial art for self defense. I wish to see the demonstration of the Kukkiwon Taekwondo Team“Said Trump.

This belt was given to Trump last Friday by Lee Dong-seop, the president of Kukkiwon, an official taekwondo regulatory organization established by the South Korean government. The event was held at the residence of the American magnate in Mar-a-Lago in Florida.

Now, Donald Trump is on par with Vladimir Putin also in taekwondo. The Russian mandatory received the black belt in taekwondo in 2013, during an official visit to South Korea.

What’s more, promised to use it in Congress. Will we see Donald Trump in the White House displaying his black belt in taekwondo? New wish on the list for “The Donald.”
