  • President Donald Trump expressed admiration for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s rule over his country.
  • Trump called Kim “a tough guy” for being able to “take over a country” at 27-years-old.
  • In 2017, Trump made similar comments about Kim. Trump described Kim as a “a pretty smart cookie” for cementing his dictatorial rule after his father, Kim Jong-il, died in 2011.

President Donald Trump expressed admiration for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s firm grip of his country during an interview with Fox News anchor Bret Baier aboard Air Force One.

“He’s a tough guy,” Trump said to Baier as he departed Singapore on Wednesday evening. “Hey, when you take over a country, tough country, with tough people, and you take it over from your father — I don’t care who you are, what you are, how much of an advantage you have.”
