Trump More Dangerous Than Kim Jong Un

In a Fox News interview set to air Tuesday on "Fox & Friends", (clip above) President Trump appears to go out of his way to call the Supreme Leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, "this gentleman", several times, while confusing him with his father, who died in 2011. He added, "There's a lot of economic and political pressure points that I think China can utilize, and we've been very encouraged with the direction in which they're going".

"It doesn't work that way". I hope things work out well.

"They've been talking with this gentleman for a long time".

"You read Clinton's book. and he said, 'Oh, we made such a great peace deal, ' and it was a joke", Trump said.

Officials privately say they regard many of Trump's policy positions as no different to, or tougher than, Obama's. Everybody has been outplayed.

When asked by a reporter what kind of message he had for Kim Jong-un, Trump simply said Monday at the White House that the North Korean leader has "gotta behave", without elaborating. "And we'll see what happens. I just don't telegraph my moves".

Kiselyov claimed out of those two, it was Trump who was more risky because he's more "impulsive and unpredictable".

"[North Korea] is ready to react to any mode of war desired by the US", the country's deputy United Nations ambassador, Kim In Ryong. said Monday in Panmunjom, according to The Associated Press.

In response to North Korea's fifth nuclear test on September 9, the Obama administration deployed two nuclear-capable supersonic B-1B Lancer strategic bombers, dubbed "swans of death", four days later in a show of force against Pyongyang's provocation.

But after the dismissal of US national security adviser Michael Flynn for misleading the White House about contacts he'd had with Russian officials, Russian media has tempered both the frequency and tone of mentions of Trump.

Prime Minister Hwang - in charge until next month's election to pick expelled President Park Geun-hye's successor - addressed a Cabinet meeting a day after discussing Pyongyang's rogue weapons development with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence.
