President Trump during an interview that aired Sunday said he thinks North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is a "pretty smart cookie."
During an interview that aired on CBS's "Face The Nation," the president was asked what he makes of Kim.
Trump said the North Korean leader was a young man when he took over power, adding that he is "dealing with obviously very tough people, in particular the generals and others."
"And at a very young age, he was able to assume power. A lot of people, I'm sure, tried to take that power away, whether it was his uncle or anybody else," Trump said.
