Donald Trump held another campaign rally on Thursday in the middle of a pandemic. He began the rally by praising the world’s most notorious autocrats.
“He’s a smart guy, smart,” Trump said of North Korea dictator Kim Jong-Un. “Very smart guy. Smart. We get along”
“You know, getting along with foreign powers is not a bad thing, we’re trying to teach that that to the media and these idiots that ran the government for so many years, these fools,” he argued. “These fools.”
“‘He gets along with Putin, that’s a terrible thing’ — no, it’s a good thing if I get along, that’s good,” Trump claimed.
“He likes me — I like him,” he continued. “Not so bad.”
“‘He gets along with King Jong-Un, that’s a terrible thing’ — no, it’s a good thing,” he argued. “It’s okay not to go to war, it’s okay.”
Take a look at his remarks below:
