Trump praises ruthless dictator Kim Jong Un as having ‘tremendous potential’

Speaking to the press in front of a roaring Marine One, President Donald Trump gushed Tuesday about his warm relationship with North Korea’s ruthless leader. “I just received a beautiful letter from Kim Jong Un,” he said. “I think the relationship is very well [sic], but I appreciated the letter.”

Trump tried to downplay that Kim Jong Un’s brother, Kim Jong Nam, may have been working with the CIA prior to his suspected execution by the North Korean government in 2017. Instead, he wanted to assure the dictator that he would never do anything so nefarious as to spy on an authoritarian regime like North Korea. “I would tell him that would not happen under my auspices, that’s for sure,” Trump insisted. “I wouldn’t let that happen under my auspices.”

“I will say it again,” Trump continued. “I think that North Korea has tremendous potential — and he’ll be there. I think that North Korea — under his leadership! But North Korea, because of what it represents — the people are great, the land is great, the location is incredible between Russia, China, and South Korea. I think North Korea has tremendous potential. And the one that feels that more than anybody is Kim Jong Un. He gets it. He totally gets it.”
