Trump brags he’s using North Korea anti-media propaganda techniques in wandering South Carolina speech

Published

on

President Donald Trump regaled North Korea and the summit he participated in with dictator Kim Jong-un during his South Carolina rally Monday.

“South Korea. Remember, they came over from South Korea. They stopped. North Korea, South Korea. The Olympics. It started with the Olympics,” rambled Trump. “When chairman Kim said we want to go to the Olympics. I said that’s nice. That’s a big difference from the dialogue we had. They want to go to the Olympics. The Olympics would have been a massive failure and turned out to be a success. President moon of South Korea gives us the credit.”

He went on to say that Olympic tickets weren’t selling before the United States announced it was getting involved in talks.

“They were not selling,” he said. “People didn’t want to be nuked in a stadium as they watched the opening ceremony. They didn’t want to be watching the opening ceremonies at the same time and looking up at the skies. How long will this last? They were not exactly selling tickets. The minute that happened — he said he would like to be part of the Olympics out of nowhere. The minute that happened, they became a fantastic success. A great Olympics. Great Olympics.”

He went on to praise Kim, saying that the two had “good chemistry.”

“Not that easy. But they took down signs. Anti-United States signs all over North Korea. They’re down. They came down. Anti-U.S. signs,” Trump said. “Like I put up anti-media signs all over the place. You’re worse than I am. No, we just want honesty.”

WATCH: Trump wonders if he should start taking insulin

On Tuesday, at a press conference, President Donald Trump mused aloud whether he should start taking insulin.

"I don’t use insulin. Should I be? Huh? I never thought about it," he said.

"But I know a lot of people are very badly affected, right?" he added a second later. "Unbelievable."

Insulin is a crucial hormone the regulates blood sugar. People who are afflicted with Type 1 diabetes are incapable of producing it in their pancreas, and thus must administer it to themselves regularly through injections or pumps.

On CNN Tuesday, Yusef Salaam, one of the members of the Exonerated Five, warned about the implications of recent racist incidents to the state of civil rights in America.

"I want to ask you, in the course of the last couple of days we've covered this story, we've covered the story of a man who died after police put him in a hold with a knee to the neck. Yesterday I spoke with an African-American journalist who covered the Kentucky governor being hung in effigy, with people doing it who didn't seem to understand why that was problematic," said anchor Brianna Keilar. "And I just wonder what that says to you, after all of these decades, about where the country is."

Gray skies loomed over Florida's Atlantic coast Tuesday, just one day before two astronauts were set to blast off aboard a SpaceX capsule on the most dangerous and prestigious mission NASA has ever entrusted to a private company.

There was a 60 percent chance for favorable weather for Wednesday's flight, according to Tuesday's latest Cape Canaveral forecast.

US astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley have been in strict quarantine for two weeks ahead of their trip on the brand-new Crew Dragon capsule, which will be propelled by a Falcon 9 rocket.

Both the capsule and the rocket were manufactured by SpaceX, the start-up founded in 2002 by the then-thirty-something Elon Musk, a brilliant and brash Mars-obsessive who made his fortune with PayPal and also created the famous Tesla electric cars.
