Donald Trump’s recent comments in favor of North Korea have brought him under the spotlight. Trump’s future strategies to strengthen the United States’ relationship with North Korea and withdraw U.S. troops from Korea’s borders impressed Pyongyang’s young leader Kim Jong Un.
Singing in favor of Trump, a North Korean state media website published an op-ed that highlighted Trump’s skepticism of America’s alliances in East Asia. The intriguing part of the news circulated by NK Today also mentions that the billionaire businessman might be considering the possibility of withdrawing over 75,000 U.S. troops from South Korea and Japan.
A Chinese North Korean scholar named Han Yong Mook wrote about the presumptive Republican nominee in DPRK Today, where he called Trump a ‘far-sighted’ and ‘wise presidential candidate.’
He wrote, “The president that U.S. citizens must vote for is not that dull Hillary—who claimed to adapt the Iranian model to resolve nuclear issues on the Korean Peninsula—but Trump, who spoke of holding direct conversation with North Korea.”
The slogan ‘Yankee go Home’, seems to have come true, as was claimed in a DPRK Today article. Indeed, the ‘Yankee go Home’ slogan will come true on the day of Korean unification, states Edition. However, this is possible only if a future policymaker of the United States takes up the responsibility of removing the U.S forces from the Korean peninsula.
On the contrary, the North Korean regime does not support reunification of the Korean Peninsula. Many called Trump’s initial nod at the new engagement as a mere “kind of propaganda or advertisement.”
North Korea’s ambassador Se Pyong feels that Trump’s gesture is just a farce and an attempt to win the presidential election, which is slated in November in America. He told Reuters last week, in response to Trump’s comments, “There is no meaning, no sincerity.”
