President Donald Trump praised himself for making North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un smile during a bizarre press conference on the White House lawn (more video below):
China and Russia and, try, North Korea, where I have a relationship. You don’t have them testing nuclear anymore. Wait, wait. You have a man that was so happy to see me.
That’s a good thing, not a bad thing. You have a man that doesn’t smile a lot, but when he saw me, he smiled, he was happy. You have a man, when I came into office, all he was doing before, under Obama, was testing nuclear weapons and blowing up mountains, and now he’s not doing it.
Trump went on to praise Labor Secretary Alex Acosta who resigned that very day after news broke this week about Acosta negotiating a light sentence for child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein 12 years ago:
The Democrats aren’t working, all they’re doing is trying to hurt people like Alex Acosta. The man who has done — a man who — I have no idea. Are you a Democrat? I have no idea. You know what I know about Alex? He was a great student at Harvard.
He is Hispanic, which I so admired because maybe it was a little tougher for him, maybe not. But he did an unbelievable job as the secretary of labor. That’s what I know about him. I know one thing. He did a great job, and until this came up, there was never an ounce of problems with this very good man.
