Washington, Feb 21 (Canadian-Media): The historic best-picture Oscar win for South Korean film Parasite was ridiculed by the United States (U.S.) President Donald Trump on Thursday telling a Colorado campaign rally he desired the return of Hollywood classics like 1939's Gone with the Wind, media reports said.

"How bad were the Academy Awards this year?" Trump said at the rally in Colorado Springs on Thursday.
"And the winner is a movie from South Korea," he went on, imitating an Academy Awards
Parasite became the first non-English-language film, earlier this month, to be awarded Hollywood's top prize.
Three other oscars were also won by Parasite: best director for Bong Joon Ho, original screenplay (shared between Bong and co-writer Han Jin Won) and best international feature film.
Trump also dismissed actor Brad Pitt, who won an Oscar for best supporting actor for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Trump is set to return to Washington after speaking at a rally in Las Vegas on Friday.
In less than a month after Parasite began showing in South Korea, North Korean propaganda website DPRK Today had said that the movie was "making people realize again that the capitalist system is a rotten, sick society with a malignant tumour of rich-becoming-richer and poor-becoming-poorer, a society with no hope or future."
