Outrage After Trump Sides With Kim On Tortured American: He Says He Didn’t Know And I Believe Him

The Guardian reports:

Trump’s explanation-free statement that he believed Kim Jong-Un when the North Korean dictator said he “didn’t know about” the imprisonment and torture of Otto Warmbier has baffled many – at both ends of the political spectrum.

Adam Schiff, California Democrat, is among those to point out that Trump’s acceptance of foreign dictator’s claims – sometimes over the intelligence of his own government – is nothing new.

Even Rick Santorum, former Republican senator for Pennsylvania, and a man usually very happy to defend Trump, voiced his concerns.
