Members of the U.S. and South Korean military reportedly gave a personalized golf jacket during his trip to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) over the weekend.
Trump noticed the jacket as he finished his remarks to military members alongside South Korean President Moon Jae-in, according to the Washington Examiner.
“What do you have over there? That looks good!” Trump said, eyeing the jacket.
“We have a small token of appreciation in recognition of your visit here in the Republic of Korea,” a service member reportedly told Trump as he presented him with the gift. “We’re grateful for your leadership — you and President Moon — and all that you do for the R.O.K.-U.S. alliance … everyone knows you’re a golfer.”
The Examiner noted that the jacket was complete with several personalized patches, including one that symbolized the U.S.-Korea alliance.
“Our motto here in Korea is ‘We go together.’ We hope that when you wear this on the golf course that you’ll think about the strength and the enduring nature of this R.O.K.-U.S. alliance. Mr. President, thank you very much,” the service member said, according to the news outlet.
Trump visited troops in South Korea on Sunday following his highly publicized meeting with North Korean leader at the DMZ. Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to step foot into North Korea, and later announced stalled nuclear negotiations with Pyongyang would resume.
