It looks like Dennis Rodman isn’t the only American that has drawn the admiration of our favorite police state. A recent editorial from North Korea’s state-run media suggests that the country’s leadership is a fan of none other than Donald Trump.
From Huffington Post:
Trump is a “wise politician” and “far-sighted presidential candidate,” the Korean-language article in DPRK Today argues.
The editorial, attributed to Chinese North Korean scholar Han Yong-mook, is not official government policy. Yet it likely reflects the authoritarian regime’s thinking, experts told NK News.
“There are many positive aspects to Trump’s ‘inflammatory policies,’” the article says, listing two in particular: Trump’s offer to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and his threat to remove U.S. forces from South Korea, which is still technically at war with the North.
If Trump were ever to meet with Kim Jong-un, I would round up some friends to pitch in on what would no doubt be a pay-per-view event. I can just imagine Trump talking about how “you guys are doing a lot of good things out here in North Korea. You’ve got the smartest guys, the best of the best, and you’ve done, uh, a lot of good things.”
This article cited a few of the supposed reasons as to why North Korea seems to support Trump, but I know the real reason: Trump has always rambled on about how big a threat the Chinese are to the United States. I’m not sure if y’all have met many Koreans before, but they seem to really, really hate China. I contacted a friend of mine who happens to have Korean heritage, and he let out one of the most offensive strings of insults I’ve ever heard when I asked him about the Chinese, citing that there are “too many of those fucking ch**** around, and they smell.” There you have it.
What an exciting week this must be for Trump, having secured the Republican nomination as well as the support of Russia and North Korea. You have to wonder what the likes of Fidel Castro and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad think of the man. .
