Trump says reports on Kim’s health ‘incorrect’

first_img‘A good relationship’Trump’s denial of the report came two days after he declined to comment on the matter, saying only that he wished Kim well.South Korea, which is still technically at war with the North, earlier said it had seen no unusual movements in its neighbor.Trump has met Kim three times in historic summitry and has voiced admiration for him, although hopes have dimmed for reaching a comprehensive agreement.”I hope he’s not in medical trouble. I hope he’s not. I have gotten along very well with him,” Trump said Thursday.”Remember you would have been in a war with North Korea if I didn’t get elected president.”Trump declined to state when he was last in touch with Kim, saying: “We have a good relationship with North Korea, as good as you can have.”Shortly before reports emerged on Kim’s health, Trump said he had received a “nice note” from the leader, but North Korea denied sending any message.North Korea has fired off a series of rockets as it demands concessions from the Trump administration, which says that international sanctions should remain until the regime fully denuclearizes.Kim was conspicuously absent on April 15 from celebrations for the birthday of his grandfather Kim Il Sung, the regime’s founder — the most important day on the North Korean political calendar.The flamboyant basketball star Dennis Rodman — who until Pompeo and Trump had been the highest-profile American to meet the reclusive Kim — said that he was “praying for his speedy recovery.” “I hope it’s just a rumor that Marshal Kim Jong-Un is sick,” Rodman told celebrity gossip site TMZ. “Hopefully I will find out more soon.” Topics : US President Donald Trump on Thursday rejected reports that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was ailing, criticizing his frequent nemesis CNN for running the story.”I think the report was incorrect, let me just put it that way,” Trump told reporters. “I’m hearing they used old documents.”Trump declined to say if he had direct knowledge from North Korea that Kim was fine.  It said that Kim, who is in his mid-30s, had needed urgent treatment due to heavy smoking, obesity and fatigue. He instead attacked cable news network CNN, with which the US leader has an acrimonious relationship.”I think it was a fake report done by CNN,” Trump said at a daily briefing on the coronavirus pandemic, before refusing to take further questions from a journalist of the network.CNN, quoting what it said was an anonymous US official, on Monday reported that Washington was “monitoring intelligence” that Kim was in “grave danger” after undergoing surgery.Daily NK, an online media outlet run mostly by North Korean defectors, separately said that Kim underwent a cardiovascular procedure earlier this month and was recovering at a villa in North Pyongan province.last_img read more

I just saw on the news last night that someone just like this was in Augusta and did the same thing. Report Reply 1 reply · active 380 weeks ago 0 Vote up Vote down Boomer · 380 weeks ago Don’t tell me Obamacare doesn’t take effect until 2014. I was laid off this month from a healthcare job because the company was downsizing; partly due to Medicare cuts that will take effect very soon. And for another matter, I’d love to go back to the “collapsed” economy of the last administration when unemployment was under 6%, gas was 2 dollars and healthcare jobs had a future.
