President Trump described North Korean leader Kim Jong-un as a “pretty smart cookie” in an interview on CBS News’ Face the Nation.

“He was a young man of 26 or 27 when he took over from his father,” Trump said. “He’s 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,” Trump said. “Obviously, he’s a pretty smart cookie.”

Trump also lamented that previous administrations had not dealt with the North Korea problem.
