President Trump promoted his Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, while delivering remarks to the South Korean National Assembly Tuesday night.
Jesus… Trump just touted his own golf courses during his S. Korea National Assembly speech. Ugh…

Before urging North Korea to “come to the table” to negotiate its growing nuclear weapons program, Trump deviated his speech to talk about Korean golfers being “some of the best” in the world before boasting about his Trump-branded golf course.
“In fact—and you know what I’m going to say—the women’s U.S. Open was held this year at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey,” Trump said.
“And it just happened to be won by a great Korean golfer, Park Sung-hyun, and eight of the top players were from Korea, and the top four golfers, one, two, three, four, the top four were from Korea.”
Trump has been facing growing criticism for using the presidency to promote his private business interests.
