North Korean Editorial Backs Donald Trump for U.S. President
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.
