How Kim Jong Un is 'playing' President Trump

"Well. It's been more than a year since since Donald Trump and Kim Jong UN at Singapore and a month since they meeting on the North Korean side of the demilitarized iron. This is the first time a sitting U._S.. President has has ended the hermit kingdom. It was an extraordinary visual as president trump took the final steps north toward the line separating north and south South Korea a smiling Kim Joan walking briskly to meet him the first time a sitting American president has ever stepped foot inside the reclusive estate another handshake before the cameras will historic events to be sure but the jury is still out true Pyongyang has released U._S.. Hostages halted nuclear and until last week missile tests and signaled a willingness to at least talk about denuclearization. It's is a far cry from two years. AGO is an remember trump's foreign fury threats North Korea best not make any more threats to the united rated states they will be met with fire and fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never ever seen before thank you or rocket man's provocations rocket man should have been handled a long time ago the little rocket man. We're going to do it because we really have. No Oh choice in data one point North Korea's foreign ministry even warned Australia was coming within the range of the nuclear strike that said Pyongyang Anyang has hinted it might resume nuclear and missile tests if the U._S. South Korean military exercises continue well. Let's get an update on North Korea as well as its thirty five year old dictator from N._F._l.. Field She's been in Asia correspondent for the Washington Post and before that the Financial Times terms for several years she's being closer than almost any journalist to the North Korean regime having visited there regularly over the past fifteen years recent book is called the great successor the secret rise and rule of Kim Jong UN as published by John Murray when my colleague Hamish Macdonald Interviewed Food and a few weeks ago I actually rushed to the bookstore and I bought a copy of it and I have to say it's an absolutely outstanding book. Anna welcome to between the lines are thank you very much. Tell them what a great introduction. Don't do it often but it's very good now. Pyongyang's last nuclear test was nearly two years ago it lasts launched a long range missile all in November two thousand Seventeen Tissot a few short range weapons since then Donald Trump would say that's that's gripe progress. Isn't it yeah I mean He. I would say that that's great progress. I mean certainly as you said it's a shop change from where we were two years ago but I think this is all very tactical from Kim engines perspective and really he's been in the driver's seat the whole time he has been calling the shots here so through two thousand seventeen he was firing missiles at seemed like every second day he conducted these two nuclear tastes including one that was a demonstrably a hydrogen bomb and then in when he was ready at the end of November two thousand seventeen when he said he'd completed his nuclear program he was signaling that he was ready to. I'm back on this charm offensive that we saw over the course of last year and that's because he feels like he's in a position of strength now he he's showing that he's made astonishing progress with missiles and nuclear weapons and he wants to be seen now as the responsible and respected leader of a nucleus date and of equivalent to Donald Trump and she's paying and let me a potion and that's where we're at now in Washington has made it clear that it wants Pyongyang to make concrete steps steps towards denuclearization before it's willing to as I sanctions that limit North Korea's tried but you know until recently the consensus was that Kim Jong Hoon was was really a madman because he really wanted these nuclear weapons. is He really crazy. He has not crazy he has coldblooded and ruthless but he is definitely not a rational not a nutjob as president trump wants colt him and you know to point to the evidence for that is the simple fact that he he is still in power almost eight years on he's defied all the expectations that he would be too inexperienced and too young to take over this this regime and he's done it by acting in a very rational strategic way <hes> to take control of North Korea so a part of that is embarking on this nuclear program which enabled him to both fend off the outside world as well as kind of a AH show strength internally give the general something to be proud of gives the ordinary people something to be proud of and they are proud of it. North Koreans have told hold me that there are especially proud that have managed to do something that <hes> South Korea and Japan have not been able to do so this is like old pot of his is plan I think and and now the face to of that plan is this charm offensive that we're now into try to be seen as an international statesman to be the <hes> you know normalizing his leadership and coming out into the outside world and most of all now he's turning to the economy and trying to develop L. at North Korea's very very backwards and decrepit economy because he knows that that's where his legitimacy could have trouble that if he is not able to show the people of North Korea that life is getting better under his leadership he may begin to have trouble keeping crowded you along kimes primary goal here is survival but let me put this to you. Anna surely the only way the North Koreans Happens <hes> no way whatsoever that he feels he needs them for his security. <hes> you know when he was taking over just two months before he took over the leadership of North Korea Moammar Gaddafi was dragged out of a ditch and Libya and beaten and killed in a very brutal way that must be seated on Kimberlin's uh-huh brain that this is what happens to a leader who strikes a deal with the United States to give up their nuclear capability so I cannot say anyway he would relinquish everything but I think he may relinquish. Something and I actually think president trump's doing the right thing here. It is time to talk to North Korea because decades needs of isolating North Korea have not solved the problem of isolation has allowed North Korea to develop nuclear weapon so you're in agreement. He said that in the trump era it's clear that the political consensus consensus including in Washington it's come around so trump's view that talking to North Korea is a good thing but could trump shift the consensus further if he decides Washington can actually live with a nuclear North Korea well. I'm not sure that Washington has come round. There are many detractors in Washington and of president trump's approach and many skeptics about denuclearization but I do think that this current phase is the right approach to be taking because we should be engaging with North Korea. There should be some progress here. You know maybe they can't get them to give up his nuclear nuclear weapons that you know they can get him to stop firing them. That could get to stop threatening them. You know if there was more engagement with North Korea the people of North Korea would have more exposure go to the outside world be able to open their eyes to the truce which they get precious little off in North Korea so there are lots of benefits to be had there that you you know not necessarily denuclearization per se that is a very very tough thing to reach but there's a lot of wiggle room between nothing and full utilization so Kim plying trump here. He's he is getting all the attention but he's conceding nothing yeah in many respects. He is playing trump. I mean trump is waxing facing lyrical about Kim jong-un explaining why the human rights abuses talking about how they fell in love assures an opinion that Kim Jong UN does is not share Kim's on pragmatic about it but can learn his won him over without having to do anything at all other than show up. You know it's old style. Dale no substance so the question is how long Kim Jong and can continue to string donald trump along like this. He knows that Donald Donald Trump is a very unconventional American president. He's unlikely to get anybody else like him again. So if Kim Jong UN is going to cut any kind of deal he needs to do it while Donald Trump is power and actually one of the things I discovered in the course of reporting this book was that the North Korean diplomats in New York had actually gone to visit a very very famous Korean fortuneteller in Manhattan to us as president trump would be reelected. That's how concerned they are but how good is the word of the United States because as as you will know the George W Bush administration did a deal with Gaddafi that he relinquishes nuclear program and yet Bush's successor. Obama helped sleet if it's to topple Gadhafi well. That's why I think that Kim Jong will never give up his nuclear weapons because that's the thing about democracy right we change. Litas is so he cannot be assured than whoever succeeds Donald trump whenever that is will stick to the same line so yeah. He's not giving those up. My guest is n._F._l.. I feel she's the author of the great successor the secret rise and the rule of Kim Jong on intriguingly the U._S. subtitle for the book is the divinely perfect perfect destiny of brilliant comrade Kim Jong Un. Let's turn to your book because clearly this is a secretive and paranoid regime that makes it very difficult to find reliable information about king John on now based on your research including interviews with defectors and members of the family. What can can you tell us about Kim. Yeah I sit out to talk to every person who never met him are to be able to put together this portrait of him and the picture that emerged this child is person who lived such an ebb normal antisocial life came from such a dysfunctional family emily. There's really no way he could've turned out any differently from the ruthless person we see before us today as a when he it was growing up in North Korea's little princeling he lived a life of absolute luxury but also of isolation in these royal compounds that scattered around North Korea he had xbox games or whatever the equivalent was then and imported food and watched movies and and his own zoo his father had a car adapted for him so you could drive it when he was a small child so he wanted for nothing except for friends he had no friends he did not go to school. He had a Tutu came to the house. He didn't even know his half siblings from his father's other relationships so he he just had his only tuneful siblings. That's only at to play within that led him to latch onto anybody he could and one of the people who became a kind of playmates inmates to him when he was seven years old was this Japanese Sushi chef who I interviewed several times in Japan and he had gone into the household there and Kim John had let sean to him and he used to the shift used to take him fishing and flying kites and they listen to Whitney Houston on the shapes Walkman way back when in an <hes> you know he he really was starved for company and so then at the age of twelve he went to the Swiss capital of burn to go to school there and the idea there was that he should be able to live something of a normal life so he did go to school. He did live you know as the son of a diplomat so he was able to have friends and enjoy going swimming in the French Riviera and eating pizza in Italy and all these kinds of things that an expect hidden Switzerland's can enjoy but even there he struggled partly because of language <hes> festival studied in

"On Fox News Sunday, President Trump's national security advisor, John Fulton defended the president's comments by North Korean dictator, Kim, John was unaware that Pyongyang had mistreated Otto warmbier he says, I'm going to take him at his word. It doesn't mean that he accepts it is reality. It means that he accepts. That's what Kim Jong UN said. So he says I take him at his word. It doesn't mean that he believes Kim Jong UN. Well, that's what he said. I think one way to prove that is to give the United States and complete accounting returned to the US in a coma and died days after he arrived back in the United States.
