Kellyanne Conway: North Korean Leader insulted Donald Trump first
Kellyanne Conway on Sunday said that President Trump’s latest tweet on Kim Jon Un was a response to an earlier insult by the North Korean dictator. Kellyanne was defending Trump’s new tweet in a channel interview .
Kellyanne said in the ABC interview “What’s helpful in full context is a 13-day trip where the president is very focused on global security and combating terrorism and most importantly, containing a nuclearized North Korea,”
This time the host Martha Raddatz asked “ and you think the name calling is helpful? Calling somebody short and fat?
To this Conway responded by saying “I think that was the president just responding the way he does to somebody who insulted him first,”
In Vietnam Donald Trump attacked Kim Jong Un in his tweet questioning why the North Korean leader would call him old? when I would NEVER call him ‘short and fat.’ ” He has previously dubbed Kim “Rocket Man.”
Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me "old," when I would NEVER call him "short and fat?" Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend – and maybe someday that will happen!
