Biographer and Pulitzer Prize winner David Cay Johnston revealed that President Donald Trump might be cozying up to North Korea because they have a history of hacking American companies.
Johnston spoke to SiriusXMProgress host Dean Obeidallah Tuesday and explained Trump might be trying to get some help from Kim Jong Un.
“Trump knows Russia helped him in the election. He accepted it willingly. Robert Mueller talked about it. Is there any possibility that Trump is thinking maybe North Korea, which has a history of cyber attacking Sony and other corporations in America, somehow will help him win the presidential election in 2020,” asked Obeidallah.
“Dean, I think that’s a perfectly reasonable thing to believe. Donald is making alliances with the most vicious, murderous dictators in the world,” Johnston said. “And North Korea’s cyber forces have been very effective…”
Johnston went on to say that Trump clearly is searching for help because he knows he won’t win the popular vote in 2020.
“The only way he can win a second term is winning the Electoral College, and that can be helped mightily by relatively minor adjustments in results and voting systems,” he concluded.
David Cay Johnston has partnered with Raw Story on exclusive reporting.

Rudy Giuliani and Ukrainian lawmaker met this week to discuss Joe Biden conspiracy theories
A Ukrainian lawmaker says he met in recent days with Rudy Giuliani to discuss a conspiracy theory involving Joe Biden.
Andriy Derkach, a member of Ukraine's parliament, said Thursday in a Facebook post that he met with President Donald Trump's personal lawyer to discuss the creation of an interparliamentary group to fight corruption and investigate the alleged misuse of U.S. taxpayer money by Ukraine's government, reported Reuters.
Rudy Giuliani now in bed with Russia ‘fake news’ spreading blogger to dig up more Ukraine ‘dirt’
President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani came under scrutiny this week for jetting off to Ukraine to push anti-impeachment conspiracy theories, following Fox News' decision to kick him off the air.
But his exercise may be even stranger than initially reported. According to The Daily Beast, Giuliani's Ukraine trip, and the content he generates from it, is intended to air on the show of Chanel Rion, a conspiracy theorist and anti-feminist children's book author who works for One America News, the pro-Trump network that was created to compete with Fox News.
