President Trump says he is unable to “speak to” North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un’s infamous legacy of mass executions, assassinations, and killings of his own people.
During a lengthy conversation with Fox & Friends, the president boasted of his meeting with Kim last week: “I got along with him great. We have a great chemistry together. That’s a good thing.”
Fox News host Steve Doocy asked: “What about the people he’s killing?”
The president replied: “I can’t speak to that. I can only speak to the fact that we signed an incredible agreement and it’s great and going to be great for them too because now North Korea can develop and North Korea can become a great country economically.”
Moments after ending the Fox News interview, Trump was asked by a media-scrum reporter: “How can [Kim] love his people if he’s killing them?” The president once again replied: “I can’t speak to that.”
