On Saturday, the Netherlands earned a sweeping victory in women's 3,000-meter speed skating, taking home the gold, silver, and bronze medals. Dutch fans saw this as a perfect opportunity to shade Trump and his "America First" slogan. Fans from the stands held up a sign reading: “Sorry Mr. President. The Netherlands First... And 2nd... And 3rd." According to Mashable, the photo was captured by Dutch TV channel NOS,
Dutch skaters Carlijn Achtereekte, Ireen Wust, and Antoinette De Jong were winners of the gold, silver, and bronze medals, respectively. Illustrator Marc Jan-Janssen drew a clever interpretation of what Trump, who is not attending the Olympics, probably did when he heard the news.
