President Donald Trump noticed how positively North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was being portrayed by the regime’s news anchor on North Korean television.
While in Singapore for his summit with Kim Jong Un, Trump compared the TV anchor, whose name is Ri Chun-hee, to someone who could work for Fox News in the US.
The joke is a nod to Fox News’ coverage of Trump, which has frequently been criticized as overly deferential to the president.

President Donald Trump watched a bit of North Korean television while he was in Singapore for his summit with Kim Jong Un, and the coverage of the North Korean leader impressed him, The Washington Post reported on Thursday.

The North Korean news anchor, Ri Chun Hee, delivers propaganda on behalf of Pyongyang’s leadership. North Korean news, which is entirely state-run, solely consists on statements that shine a positive light on Kim and the country. As Trump watched, according to The Post’s report, he remarked about her praise of Kim and suggested she could work for Fox News.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
