While visiting Tokyo over the weekend, President Donald Trump reportedly said that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un would make a “better president” than Democratic candidate Joe Biden. But the report turned out to be erroneous.

“Kim Jong-un is smarter and would make a better President than Sleepy Joe Biden,” Trump was quoted as saying, according to Time columnist Ian Bremmer.

Earlier in the day, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders revealed that the president agrees with the North Korean dictator’s “assessment” of Biden’s allegedly “low I.Q.”

It was not immediately clear where or when Trump said the quote. Some questioned its authenticity.

Trump is, however, on record praising Kim and attacking Biden at the same time.

Bremmer was later asked to clarify the report, but he refused, claiming that it is “a comment on the state of media and the twitterverse today.”

The columnist did not provide any further explanation.
