During his interview with Fox and Friends, Trump said he wants the American people to respond to him the way that starved and oppressed N. Koreans respond to Kim Jong-un.
Trump answered when asked if Kim Jong-un will be invited to the White House, “It could happen, yeah, I would, yeah I think it is something that could happen. Yeah. Hey, he is the head of a country and I mean he is the strong head. Don’t let anyone think anything different. He speaks and his people sit up at attention.”
Trump wants to be a dictator
The reason why Trump fights with US allies and praises dictators like Kim Jong-un and Putin is that Trump identifies with dictators and authoritarians. Trump wants to be a dictator. When he looks at Kim Jong-un, Trump doesn’t see a criminal who is starving, oppressing, and executing his own people while corruptly stealing national resources for himself. Trump sees Kim Jong-un as a strong man who has compelled everyone in his country to show him love at the threat of imprisonment and/or death.
Trump doesn’t care that the North Korean people jump to attention for Kim because if they don’t, he will have them murdered.
What is even more chilling is that Trump wants to turn the United States into North Korea.
