Fox News’ Brit Hume: Trump’s Friendly Behavior Towards ‘Thug’ Kim Jong Un is ‘Disconcerting’

Fox News political analyst Brit Hume had a more pessimistic take of President Trump‘s ongoing summit with North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un.

So far, things have been very cordial between the two leaders from their handshake to their bilateral meeting. However, Hume took exception to Trump saying that “it’s an honor” to be engaging with the dictator and is banking on the savviness of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who had previously met with the dictator while still serving as the CIA Director.

“Disconcerting to say the least to see POTUS shaking hands with the thug Kim Jong Un and saying he’s ‘honored,’” Hume tweeted. “Will only be worth it if Mike Pompeo is right about what he sensed in his NK meetings. We’ll know soon enough.”

Hume further elaborated his thinking on the summit.
