N. Korea Praises Trump Over Hillary

A North Korean state-media outlet praised Donald Trump on Tuesday, calling him “wise” and “far-sighted.” The editorial contrasted Trump’s philosophy with “dull Hillary.” The outlet, DPRK Today, welcomed Trump’s proposal to hold talks with Kim Jong Un. “There are many positive aspects to Trump’s ‘inflammatory policies,’” said Han Yong Mook, a reported Chinese North Korean scholar. “Trump said he will not get involved in the war between the South and the North—isn’t this fortunate from North Korea’s perspective?” Though the editorial wasn’t officially from Pyongyang, its origin was likely from inside the regime, several sources claimed. The presumptive GOP presidential nominee has said he would drastically change U.S. policy in the region. The orange-hued mogul suggested in March that he would withdraw U.S. military forces from South Korea if that country did not ramp up its defense spending.
