North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son-hui twice described U.S. President Donald Trump as a fellow “supreme leader” to her country’s own Kim Jong-Un, whose official title is “the Supreme Leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea”.
“Personal relations between the two supreme leaders are still good and the chemistry is mysteriously wonderful,” Choe told a reporter with Russian state media outlet TASS at a press conference in Pyongyang.
Previously in the same press conference, Choe blamed National Security Advisor John Bolton for having “obstructed the constructive effort for negotiations between the supreme leaders of North Korea and the United States” by creating an “atmosphere of hostility and mistrust”.
“I want to make it clear that the gangster-like stand of the U.S. will eventually put the situation in danger,” she added.
Choe is one of the North Korea’s most senior diplomats, and the head of the North American portfolio at the North Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs, making her the country’s de-facto Ambassador to the United States and to Canada. She has previously played a central role in unsuccessful negotiations between the North Korea and the Clinton and Obama administrations.
Trump’s elevation to Supreme Leader status by the North Koreans should now be reflected in U.S. law through a constitutional amendment. Many of Trump’s supporters remain worried about the prospect of term limits in 2024, and are eager and willing to embrace a longer term form of rule for our beloved President. A position such as Supreme Leader of the United States is only a fitting reward for a man who has sacrificed everything to make his country great again.
