Dear Leader spent part of the 9-11 anniversary giving a speech at the Moonie's "Think Tank 2022 Rally of Hope," proving, once again, that there isn't anything Trump won't do for a buck.

In his speech, Trump said, "I want to thank the Universal Peace Federation and in particular Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, a tremendous person, for her incredible work on behalf of peace all over the world."

"What they have achieved on the peninsula is just amazing. In just a few decades, the inspiration that they have caused for the entire planet is unbelievable, and I congratulate you again and again," Trump said about the couple.
