nknews.com said:
A North Korean editorial on Tuesday said Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump can bring about North Korea’s “Yankee Go Home” slogan and ultimately help unify the Korean Peninsula.

The article published in state media outlet DPRK Today also referred to Trump’s proposal to hold direct talks with Kim Jong Un, praising the likely Republican nominee as a “wise politician” and “far-sighted presidential candidate.”

“In my personal opinion, there are many positive aspects to the Trump’s ‘inflammatory policies’,” wrote Han Yong Mook, who introduced himself as a Chinese North Korean scholar.

The Guardian said:
Analysts said that although the editorial was not officially from Pyongyang, it was sure to reflect thinking inside the regime.

“This is very striking,” said Aidan Foster-Carter of the University of Leeds. “Admittedly it is not exactly Pyongyang speaking, or at least not the DPRK government in an official capacity. But it is certainly Pyongyang flying a kite, or testing the waters.

So this comes from the state owned newspaper, DPRK Today, so whilst it does not come directly from the govt it looks like a pretty clear indicator. So Trump can add Kim Jong Un to his list of admirers (which includes Vladimir Putin).

Solid pickup for the Trumpster. When do you think he'll get the Romulan nod?

Hey Trump fans, an actual Communist dictatorship is endorsing the Trumpster. The irony shouldn't be lost on any of you.

Yeah, and Obama gave the order that put a bullet through Bin Laden's eyeball in 2011. Maybe this could work out for all of us.

Totally. Like, they stop shooting those rockets, and we let them keep Dennis Rodman for good.

AND - they give us a bowl of delicious sundubu jjigae stew! Oh...wrong Korea.

Now that North Korea is on board, Baltimore shouldn't be too far behind.

Putin has a lot more real power and influence than Kim Jong-un will ever have.
