Last night there was a CNN report saying the U.S. is monitoring intelligence that Kim Jong Un is in “grave danger” after surgery. President Donald Trump was asked at Tuesday’s coronavirus press briefing by Fox News’ Bret Baier, “What can you tell us about the status of Kim Jong Un?”
“Well, these are reports that came out, and we don’t know,” the president said. “We don’t know. I’ve had a very good relationship with him. I can only say this. I wish him well, because if he is in the kind of condition that the reports say, that the news is saying, that’s a very serious condition, as you know. But I wish him well.”

#WATCH: Pres. Trump on Kim Jong Un: “I wish him very, ya know, good luck…They came out with very serious medical reports; nobody’s confirmed that…When CNN comes out with a report, I don’t put much credence in it.” pic.twitter.com/sQsORCZ67N

It’ll always crack me up:
When Obama simply bowed to the Saudi King & the emperor of Japan, Republicans screamed “Pathetic! Weak!”
Trump allows dictators like Putin, Kim Jong un, Erdogan, & the Saudi Prince to lead him around by the nose, Republicans shout, “Brilliant! Tough!”

Donald Trump is showing more sympathy for Kim Jong-un than he is the 45,000 Americans who’ve died this month.

Trump says Kim Jong Un wouldn’t meet with Obama.
Obama never wanted to meet with Kim Jong Un. Never called, never tried, had a strategy of non-engagement.
