Jennifer Jacobs, senior White House reporter for Bloomberg News, expanded on the reporting on Monday evening.

“Trump admin received information that Kim Jong Un had heart surgery last week and if he’s alive, his health is poor, I’m told. KJU hasn’t been seen at key events in recent days,” she reported.
