CNN blasted for 'fake news' Kim Jong Un report

US President Donald Trump on Thursday threw more cold water on reports earlier this week that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was gravely ill, but declined to say if he had been in touch with officials there.

“I think the report was incorrect,” Trump said at a daily White House briefing, adding that he had heard it was based on “old documents.”

“We have a good relationship with North Korea, I have a good relationship with Kim Jong Un and I hope he’s ok,” Trump added.

Daily NK, a Seoul-based website, reported late on Monday that Kim, who is believed to be about 36, was recovering after undergoing a cardiovascular procedure on April 12.

It cited one unnamed source in North Korea.

Two South Korean government officials rejected a subsequent

CNN report citing an unnamed U.S. official saying that the United States was “monitoring intelligence” that Kim was in grave danger after surgery.

On Tuesday, Trump, who held unprecedented summits with Kim in 2018 and 2019 in an attempt to persuade him to give up his nuclear weapons, said the reports had not been confirmed and he did not put much credence in them.

Kim is a third-generation hereditary leader who rules North Korea with an iron fist, coming to power after his father Kim Jong Il died in 2011 from a heart attack. (Reporting by Steve Holland; Writing by Alexandra Alper; Editing by Sandra Maler)

  • I think that idiot Trump would really miss him.

    Back in 2018: Trump praised Kim at a campaign rally on Saturday, saying that he and the North Korean leader "fell in love."

    "I was really being tough and so was he," Trump said. "And we would go back and forth. And then we fell in love. No really. He wrote me beautiful letters."

    "They were great letters. And then we fell in love," he continued.

  • Its funny how when trump has no idea about something its fake and then when he learns about it. He already knew cause he knows everything. Russia reported him dead April 21. Whats strange is his train arrived outside of Pyongyang on 22. His father had the same scenario.
    His dad died on 17 December at 8:32 am of a massive heart attack while travelling by train to an area outside Pyongyang. Reportedly, he had received medical treatment for cardiac and cerebrovascular diseases.
