Trump on North Korea: 'I Don't Want to Telegraph What I'm Doing'

Trump on North Korea: 'I Don't Want to Telegraph What I'm Doing'

In the latest sign of the Kremlin's abrupt about-face on its erstwhile American hero, Kiselyov pronounced Trump "more dangerous" than his North Korean counterpart. Dmitry Kiselyov, whose weekly news review show on Russia's state-run broadcaster has served as one of the most widely-watched pro-Kremlin programs in Russian Federation, turned his attention to North Korea last week.

Kiselyov told his viewers that the planet "is a hair's breadth away from a real nuclear war with all its catastrophic consequences".

Kim Jong-un has only been in power since 2011 when his father Kim Jong-il died, but when President Trump made his remarks, he said that previous USA leaders had been working with "this gentleman", for years.

"Both are risky, but who is more unsafe?"

"He (Kim Jong-Un) is after all on his home territory", said Kiselyov.

In an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper on Sunday, Rep. Mia Love, a Republican from Utah, likewise said she did not know the Trump administration's strategy to deal with the North Korean nuclear issue and said Trump should inform Congress. He did acknowledge that Kiselyov's "position is close, but not every time".

Like much of Russia's state-controlled media, Kiselyov initially praised Trump in the weeks before and after his election. "The recent USA missile attack on Syria tells you well of it", said Kim.

A survey by state pollster VTsIOM showed on Monday that the percentage of Russians who hold a negative view of Trump has jumped to 39 from seven percent in a month, and that feelings of distrust and disappointment towards him have grown too. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi called Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov to plea for help.

Trump, he says, "doesn't intend to use the US military to effect regime change in Syria, which is completely consistent with everything he said during the course of his campaign, not just about Syria, but about other countries".

In a preview clip of an interview set to air on Fox News Channel's Tuesday broadcast of "Fox & Friends", President Donald Trump said Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama were "outplayed" by North Korea.
