This morning, President Donald Trump decided to talk a stroll out on the White House’s lawn and give his favorite program an “unannounced” interview as Fox & Friends was broadcasting live outside.
In his typical free-wheeling and stream of consciousness style, the president conversed with his good buddy and loyal defender Steve Doocy. And early on in the discussion, the president was asked about North Korea and his relationship with brutal dictator Kim Jong Un.
Doocy asked the president if Kim would be visiting the White House anytime soon, as has been reported. Trump, continuing his new strategy of lavishing praise upon the Hermit Kingdom leader, pointed out how strong and tough the murderous totalitarian is. And wished that he had that type of power here.
“I think it’s something that can happen,” he told Doocy. “Hey, he’s the head of a country, and I mean he’s the strong head. Don’t let anyone think anything different.”
He continued, “He speaks and his people sit up at attention. I want my people to do the same.”
Despite the president directly stating that he wants the American people — or was he just talking about his staff??? — to be forced to support him, the Fox & Friends host just moved right along to another question.
Watch the clip below.
WOW — Trump says he wants American people to treat him like North Koreans treat totalitarian dictator Kim Jong Un.
