Phil Mudd, the ex-deputy director of the CIA’s Counterterrorist Center, slammed President Donald Trump on Wednesday for treating nemesis North Korea better right now than he's treating longtime ally Canada.
During a CNN panel on Trump's foreign policy, Mudd said he was amazed at how quickly Trump heaped praise on Kim Jong-un after the North Korean leader sent him flattering messages.
"When [Trump] decided he wanted a high-impact summit, he referred to the leadership skills of the North Korean leader and thanking him for releasing hostages after this new friend, the North Korean leader, murdered an American who was a hostage," he said.
He then contrasted the president's sudden seeming affection for Kim with his treatment of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
"Now we're going to the Canadians saying, 'You guys have been with us in major combat since 9/11, including the catastrophic mistake of Iraq, and now you're a national security threat,'" Mudd fumed. "It doesn't make any sense."
