North Korea Defectors Bullied Over MAGA Hats
A viral video of a group of Koreans, including two North Korean defectors, being harassed in Washington, D.C., for their support of President Donald Trump surfaced over the weekend.
The video shows the group walking around in “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) hats in Washington, D.C., last month before two men start heckling them. One of the men can be seen pulling the hat off one of the victims’ heads and tossing it up in the air. (Here’s Why Trump Talks With Kim Jong Un Fell Apart)
The video was originally posted by a rapper who goes by the name “Bigolow Black” but was deleted after PJ Media reported on the incident.
“Not Around Here Pimp … Ain’t None Of That Make America Great Again Sh*t,” Black wrote according to PJ Media.
The video was picked up and re-posted by several users over the past week. (RELATED: Woman Says, ‘Go Trump,’ While Good Samaritan Fixes Her Car)

The lady in this video wearing a MAGA hat can clearly be heard saying “we’re from North Korea.” Sad to see the ambassadors these North Korean defectors were greeted by.
Please share this since MSM won’t.

One of the South Koreans wrote to PJ Media that the group was proud of Trump’s policies toward North Korea, and that they wanted to show their appreciation of the president.
“Two of us were North Korean defectors who escaped for freedom. They had to save up money for a long time to come. We thought America is a democracy. But we had no freedom to wear a hat?” He said. “We came here to speak out about human rights abuses. And we had no right to wear a hat? We thank Trump. The sanctions are working. The North Korean regime should be collapsed.”
The Trump administration has made it a point to seek out a peace deal with the North Korean government, with the president holding multiple summits with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, while strictly enforcing sanctions against the despotic regime.
Throughout negotiations, Trump has been able to secure the release of several U.S. hostages held in North Korean labor camps, as well as the remains of U.S. servicemen who perished in the Korean War more than 60 years ago.
