Trump: Kim Jong Un will transform North Korea

President Trump endorsed North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un’s leadership, weeks ahead of their second summit in Vietnam.

Trump, who previously dubbed Kim “Rocket Man” for the country’s efforts to obtain nuclear weapons, offered a new description of the country and its leader Friday.

“North Korea will become a different kind of Rocket – an Economic one!” Trump wrote, also saying the hermit kingdom has the ability to become “a great Economic Powerhouse” under Kim.


It’s a drastic turn from his State of the Union address last year, in which Trump condemned the country’s human rights abuses.


Trump and Kim are scheduled to meet in Hanoi, Vietnam, on Feb. 27-28. The two met for the first time in Singapore in June.
