Trump says he DID discuss human rights with Kim Jong Un – [VIDEO]

At his 4am press conference, Trump says he did bring up the issue of human rights with Kim Jong Un. He said it was brief compared to the issue of denuclearization, but it was discussed:

Trump was pressed on it by ABC’s Jonathan Karl, and Trump suggested that he believes Un wants to change in this regard as well and that it’s something that needs to happen to usher in the new era of North Korea:

I’m glad to hear that Trump did broach the subject of human rights and that he feels Kim wants to change on that issue too. But I would like to see some progress on that front before Trump brings Un to the White House.

That said I am glad that Trump and Kim committed to denuclearization of N. Korea in writing. I think it’s definitely a great place to start, but of course it’s only a start and needs verifiable action before we can even begin to call this a successful endeavor.

However, considering we were talking war just a few months ago, this is a pretty amazing step in the right direction. Despite what Trump critics may say, he definitely deserves credit for bringing us to this point and doing something his 2016 critics would have NEVER predicted.
