Trump has said he will pressure China to rein in North Korea's oftentimes unpredictable leader but that the U.S. Dmitry Kiselyov, whose weekly news review show on Russia's state-run broadcaster has served as one of the most widely-watched pro-Kremlin programs in Russian Federation, turned his attention to North Korea last week.
Pentagon sources revealed the potential plan as a deterrent to deal with the rogue state marching the world towards nuclear war.
On April 14, United States media said that Trump might order a strike against North Korea in the event Pyongyang made a decision to carry out another nuclear weapon test.
Newsmax reports, "In the latest sign of the Kremlin's abrupt about-face on its erstwhile American hero, Kiselyov pronounced Trump "more dangerous" than his North Korean counterpart". The additional note that Trump didn't once refer to the North Korean leader by his name, referring to him only as "this gentleman", means that he most likely has no idea who is actually heading North Korea, nor the real situation ongoing there.
"He (Kim Jong-Un) is after all on his home territory".
Where does President Donald Trump stand on a military strike against North Korea? "His position is close, but not every time", said Peskov.

Like much of Russia's state-controlled media, Kiselyov initially praised Trump in the weeks before and after his election.
The network says the US relationship with China and the president's immigration policy will also be discussed.
The Kremlin realizes however, those same officials say, that the process will be harder and take longer than originally thought and the result is likely to be more limited in scope.
"I don't want to telegraph what I'm doing or what I'm thinking", he tells Fox News Channel's "Fox & Friends" in an interview to air Tuesday morning. You look at, uh, different things over the years with President Obama, everybody, he's been outplayed.
