Donald Trump awarded 9th Dan Taekwondo black belt, now outranks Chuck Norris

Donald Trump is now a black belt for the 9th Dan Taekwondo.

That ranks him above eighth Dan Chuck Norris, and many other Taekwondo masters, which may explain why the combat sports community is on a war footing. Blame the president of the Taekwondo World Headquarters (Kukkiwon), Lee Dong-sup, who insists that there are no political motives behind the honorary certificate.

“It is an honor for me to receive the Honorary Dan Certificate and I believe that Taekwondo is a magnificent martial art for self defense,” said the former President of the United States after donning his Dobok. “I wish to see the demonstration of the Kukkiwon Taekwondo team.”

Trump, who was ousted from his post last November, does not practice any form of martial arts, but has long been a supporter of the UFC and promotion chairman Dana White. In fact, the Las Vegas boss fighter was stumped by the controversial real estate mogul at two Republican National Conventions.

It should be noted that Russian President Vladimir Putin also received a black belt from the 9th Dan Taekwondo in 2013.
