Trump regarding the health of North Korea Lider
President Donald Trump said during the White House Coronavirus Task Force press briefing that the administration did not know the status of North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un, and that while he wishes Kim well, he does not put a lot of faith in the report because it came from CNN.
Fox News anchor Bret Bairer asked Trump, “North Korea, what can you tell us about the status of Kim Jong Un?”
“Well, these are reports that came out, and we don’t know,” Trump responded. “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.”
“But I wish him well. We’ve had a good relationship. I’ve said it,” Trump continued. “I’ve said it many times: If somebody else were in this position, we would have been right now at war with North Korea. And we are not at war. We are nowhere close to war with North Korea. I just have to say to Kim Jong Un, I wish him very good luck. Good luck. They came out with very serious medical reports.”
Trump concluded by taking a shot at CNN, saying that no one has confirmed their reporting.
“It was CNN that came out [with the report], so when CNN comes out with a report I don’t place too much credence in it.”
