Donald Trump praises North Korean leader as a ‘smart cookie’

30 Apr

“I can tell you this: He was a young man of 26 or 27 when he took over from his father, when his father died. He’s dealing with obviously very tough people – in particular the generals and others – and at a very young age he was able to assume power.

“A lot of people I’m sure tried to take that power away, whether it was his uncle or anybody else, and he was able to do it.

“So obviously he’s a pretty smart cookie.”

It is not the first time Mr Trump has talked up Mr Kim’s skills as a young survivor.
