Trump Mimicked Leaders of Japan, South Korea at Fundraiser, Media Claims

Donald Trump mimicked Japanese and Korean accents when speaking about his diplomatic progress during a recent fundraising event in the Hamptons, the New York Post reports.

Donald Trump's journey to the Hamptons to raise funds for his 2020 presidential campaign entered the spotlight after one of the fundraiser's organisers, Stephen Ross, faced a boycott of his companies, Equinox and Soul Cycle, by celebrities due to his support for the USA president. He reportedly proceeded to say, "So why are we paying for their defence? They've got to pay".

The president allegedly mocked the US allies before a crowd of 500 at Farrell's fundraiser in his Bridgehampton home.

Equinox Fitness and SoulCycle have responded to criticism of its owner's plan to hold a fundraiser for President Donald Trump's 2020 campaign.

According to the New York Post, Trump mimicked Moon giving in on negotiations over defense spending.

Elon Musk Supports Democratic Candidate
As president Yang hopes to launch what he calls a Freedom Dividend that would provide $1,000 a month to every American. When asked by Twitter user Harry Stoltz about universal basic income, Musk called the policy "obviously needed".

Trump spoke about his friendship with Abe and how fascinated he was with Abe's father, who had been a kamikaze pilot.

This is not the first time Trump has been accused of faking an Asian accent.

Abe, who answered no, explained that they did it out of love for their country. At a rally in August 2015 as the Republican presidential candidate, he used broken English to mock Chinese and Japanese businessmen, according to the South China Morning Post. 'How are the Yankees doing?' Oh, they are doing wonderful, great.

The president has been called out for performing ill-advised impressions of foreign leaders before, like when he imitated Chinese President Xi Jinping while praising the Chinese leader's hardline stance against drug trafficking during a speech given in February. Trump associates persuaded Ross to continue as planned. "'Death penalty. We give death penalty to people that sell drugs". Reportedly, some tickets for the fundraiser held by Ross were priced at $100,000, and others were priced at $250,000.
