A North Korean state media outlet on Tuesday praised presumptive GOP presidential nomineeDonald Trump.
The outlet, DPRK Today, called Trump a “wise politician” and a “far-slighted presidential candidate,”according to NKNews.org.
“In my personal opinion, there are many positive aspects to the Trump’s ‘inflammatory policies,’ ” wrote Han Yong Mook, who said he was a Chinese North Korean scholar.
“Trump said ‘he will not get involved in the war between the South and the North,’ isn’t this fortunate from North Koreans’ perspective?” the piece says.
The writer referenced a speech Trump made where he said he talked about possibly withdrawing military forces from Seoul unless it pays more for its defense costs.
“Yes do it, now … Who knew that the slogan ‘Yankee Go Home’ would come true like this?” the editorial said.
“The day when the ‘Yankee Go Home’ slogan becomes real would be the day of Korean Unification.”
The editorial also slammed Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton.
“The president that U.S. citizens must vote for is not that dull Hillary — who claimed to adapt the Iranian model to resolve nuclear issues on the Korean Peninsula — but Trump, who spoke of holding direct conversation with North Korea.”
Always nice to see the presumptive GOP nominee endorsed by our enemies, huh?
