Washington D.C. [U.S.A.], June 15: United States President Donald Trump on Friday said that he wants “his people” to listen to him, like people of North Korea listens to their leader Kim Jong Un.
“He’s the head of a country. And I mean, he is the strong head,” Trump said during a ‘Fox & Friends’ interview.
“Don’t let anyone think anything different. He speaks and his people sit up at attention. I want my people to do the same,” he added.
According to The Hill, it is unclear what Trump meant by “his people” and “my people”. The phrasings can, on one hand, mean all North Koreans and Americans, and on the other hand can mean people reporting directly to the two leaders.
However, the interviewer did not asked a straight follow-up question to clarify.
The US President was later questioned about the phrasings, to which he said, “I was kidding.”
“You don’t understand sarcasm,” he said to the press, after the interview.
The US President praised the North Korean leader during the Fox interview, and said that he had “hit it off” with Kim.
“We get along very well, we had good chemistry,” Trump said.
The comments from the US President came after he met Kim Jong-un on June 12, for a summit at Singapore, in which they signed an agreement for a stable and peaceful Korean regime.
