If you missed it, Saturday was a pretty successful day for the Dutch at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.
Three Dutch women, Carlijn Achtereekte, Ireen Wust and Antoinette de Jong, swept the women’s 3,000-meter speed skating event for the first time in the country’s storied history in the sport.
It was certainly a cause for celebration for Dutch fans and as Dutch TV channel NOS captured, an opportunity for some gloating. Two women in the stands had a message for the rest of the world and, more than likely, President Trump, as they proudly waved a Dutch flag with the words, “Sorry Mr. President. The Netherlands FIRST…and 2nd…and 3rd!”
President Trump has dubbed his international policy as “America first,” an approach to the rest of the world that has left the United States far more isolated, The Washington Post’s Griff Witte and Michael Birnbaum wrote in January.
It also gives other countries a reason to poke some fun at America.
