Trump Dismisses Kim Jong Uns Atrocities: Hes a Tough Guy
In an interview with Fox News immediately after his summit with Kim Jong Un in Singapore, President Donald Trump appeared to dismiss North Koreas human rights violations and Kims atrocities against his own people. Hey, hes a tough guy. When you take over a countrya tough country, tough peopleand you take it over from your father, I dont care who you are, what you are, how much of an advantage you have. If you can do that at 27 years old, I mean, thats one in 10,000 that could do that. So hes a very smart guy. Hes a great negotiator, Trump told Fox News Bret Baier. When pressed further, Trump responded: Yeah, but so have other people done some really bad things. I could go through a lot of nations where a lot of bad things were done. Last year, the president made a similar argument when dismissing Russian President Vladimir Putins human rights violations. What do you think, our country's so innocent? he said at the time.
