Donald Trump’s recent praise of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has paid off already as the country’s state media agency has now thrown its support behind the presumptive GOP nominee.
DPRK Today‘s endorsement of the spray-tanned billionaire, which was published on Tuesday, hilariously called Trump “wise” and “far-sighted” and praised him for his recent promise to meet with potential fellow dictator Kim Jong-un.
“There are many positive aspects to Trump’s ‘inflammatory policies,’” the editorial read.
The write-up also complimented Trump on his suggestion that he will withdraw American forces from South Korea, which is still officially at war with North Korea.
“Trump said ‘he will not get involved in the war between the South and the North,’ isn’t this fortunate from North Koreans’ perspective?” the piece read.
According to the Huffington Post, the pro-Trump article – written by North Korean scholar Han Yong-mook – is not the government’s official opinion but more than likely reflects the thinking of the totalitarian regime.
Of course, those who agree with Trump on many of his foreign policy proposals are few and far between. Officials in both major political parties in the U.S. criticized the New York billionaire’s proposal to meet with the brutal dictator.
So, if you’re keeping score at home, Donald Trump has successfully alienated America’s closest ally, helped terrorist organizations recruit members, and now has the support of a country that currently enslaves over a million of its citizens.
It should be noted that the editorial also advised Americans to not elect Hillary Clinton as the next president, so the choice is yours on whose side to take.
