A couple of weeks ago, South Korean film Parasite made history by winning the Best Film Oscar for Non-English Language Film for the first time. Parasite was a success at the Oscar gala, collecting three other verticals, including Best Direction.

Trump was also annoyed by the thank-you speech of Best Actor Oscar-winning Brad Pitt at the gala. In his speech, Pitt threw a boisterous reference to US day-to-day politics and Trump's criminal trial.

Trump responded that he had never been a fan of Brad Pitts.
