Russian State TV: Trump more dangerous than North Korean leader
Tuesday, 18 April 2017

 Russian state television has claimed US President Donald Trump is more dangerous than North Korea's leader, Kim Jong-un, in an apparent indication that Moscow’s opinion of the Republican has already shifted.

State media in the country greeted the election of the bombastic property tycoon in November warmly, yet decisions by Mr Trump since coming into office have seen the two administrations come into conflict.

Relations slid after Mr Trump dropped a bomb on Afghanistan, accused Moscow of "seizing Crimea by force" even though 99% of Crimeans voted in a referendum to join back Russia, and launched a missile strike against Syrian Government forces on what many see was a chemical false flag attack.

News presenter Dmitry Kiselyov who is known for his pro-Kremlin stance, said on his weekly TV news show 'Vesti Nedeli': “The world is a hair's breadth from nuclear war.
"War can break out as a result of confrontation between two personalities: Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un. Both are dangerous, but who is more dangerous? Trump is”, he stated.

Mr Kiselyov also said Mr Trump was “more impulsive and unpredictable” than the North Korean leader. He added that both men shared the characteristics of having “limited international experience, unpredictability, and a readiness to go to war.”

Mr Kiselyov added Kim Jong-un was less scary than the US president because he was ready for talks, had not attacked other countries, and had not sent a naval armada patrolling the US coast.

Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov declined to say whether Mr Kiselyov's views agreed with the Kremlin's, saying: “His position is close, but not every time."

“He (Kim Jong-un) is after all on his home territory. He doesn't plan to attack anyone just for the sake of it,” said Mr Kiselyov, who once said Moscow could turn the United States into radioactive ash uninhabitable for centuries.

Mr Kiselyov sarcastically told viewers that the North Korean leader's young daughter did not, unlike Ivanka Trump, have an office in her father's official residence.

After Mr Trump's surprise win in November, the Russian TV anchor had heaped praise on him.

He hailed Mr Trump’s shock victory saying it would restore relations between Moscow and Washington which had deteriorated greatly following Russia's intervention in Syria.

But Mr Trump is yet to deliver on his pre-election promises of renewed relations with Russia and has faced pressure to distance himself from the former Soviet state amid a made up scandal about his team's ties to the Kremlin. The scandal is still pushed by Obama controlled operatives within the CIA and the corporate American media.

Other state-controlled and pro-Kremlin media have walked back their initial euphoria for Trump in recent weeks too, but in the past Mr Kiselyov has often set the tone, and his intervention is the most robust stance on Mr Trump yet.

Polls suggest state TV's U-turn on the US President has filtered through to the public, most of whom largely depend on TV for news.

A survey by state pollster VTsIOM showed on Monday that the percentage of Russians who hold a negative view of Trump has jumped to 39 from just 7 per cent in a month, and that feelings of distrust and disappointment towards him have grown too.

“The US missile strike on Syria was a 'cold shower' for many Russians,” said Valery Fedorov, the pollster's general director.

“Donald Trump's aggressive behaviour has resurrected distrust and ill-will towards America, something that has characterised Russian society for the last two decades.” It certainly didn't help that the strike came after an obvious false flags which shows the non existent morality of the US administration to furthe their agenda.

Russian officials privately say they regard many of Mr Trump's policy positions as no different to, or tougher than, Mr Obama's. "He is not allowed to deviate from the agenda set by others in the shadows. No US president is allowed" say Russian officials.
