Trump praises “very talented” Kim for taking over North Korea, running it “tough”

147 posts in this topic

Trump is our first post-Democracy President

 

Trump's comments praising Kim, however, were unusual for a U.S. president. American officials have often avoided speaking warmly about North Korean leaders, because of the country's poor human rights record and ambitious weapons programs. 

Asked on Tuesday why he is so comfortable calling Kim "talented," Trump credited the young leader with running his country at such a young age. 

"Well, he is very talented," Trump said. "Anybody that takes over a situation like he did at 26 years of age and is able to run it and run it tough. I don't say he was nice."

"Very few people at that age – you can take one out of ten thousand probably couldn’t do it."

He's always shown great admiration and even affection toward autocrats and dictators. The fact he appears to view Kim's brutality as a talent is very revealing.

Seems right.  They're both narcissists born with silver spoons in their mouths.

Tramp even called Kim his "friend".

What a low bar!

Mr. Trump, in an interview he gave to ABC's George Stephanopoulos shortly after meeting with Kim, said he trusts the North Korean dictator.

"I do trust him," Mr. Trump said. :rolleyes:

Perhaps he can get Rocket Man to mentor him.  Alienate allies - check.  Fawn over murderous dictator - check.

'Running it tough'       We are a leaderless nation.

Kim's definitely not starving.

Reporter: You at that point said that North Korea has more brutally oppressed its people than any regime on Earth. Do you still believe that's the case?

Trump: I believe it's a rough situation over there. It's rough in a lot of places, by the way, not just there.

There's a precedent here...

Nixon 'opened' China.  Resigned in disgrace after caught being a two-bit thug.

Trump may 'open' North Korea.  Will probably go to prison for treason with the Rooskies.

This place is starting to sound like a Bruce Willis movie...

Trump has given legitimacy to an arrogant, two-bit dictator. This guy had no credibility on the world stage before Trump came along.

Trump probably thinks Hitler was great because he made the trains run on time.

Say it? He believes it. Americans know this full well and still made him president. Forget about Trump, what does it say about us?

As far as can be determined the deal requires us to leave SK in exchange for them doing nothing. Gee, why didn't previous administrations think of that?  Pretty lopsided to put it mildly.  Time to stop pretending Trump isn't under the influence of the other side and is pulling us into the Axis of Evil.

Have you seen specifics on a deal?
