close tovideo, Tucker Carlson describes the historic moment when Trump set foot on North Korean soil
Fox News host Tucker Carlson says President of the Trump was so happy as he had ever seen him, as he crossed the DMZ on North Korean soil.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson witnessed the historic meeting between President Trump and the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) on Sunday, and shared his thoughts on “Fox & Friends”.
Carlson said Kim was “wheezing” in an unhealthy way and sound like a “emphysema” patients, whose health condition is deteriorating quickly.
“Our President met with the North Korean leader, in fact, with relatively few people watching. You kind of almost, like a movie scene, hit after a walk to the other — actually on the border. They shook hands … then both of them came back and kind of stood there, about three meters away from us and talked,” he said.

“Kim met me – he is a tough character. there is no question that-maybe a little out of his game,” Carlson. “I don’t think he’s surrounded by people he doesn’t very often – wheezing like an emphysema patient, not a healthy guy. But, basically, he struck me as a kind of self-contained. Trump was so happy when I saw him at all, because it is something that has not been done before and probably would not have been really is done, without himself and his very different style of governance and thinking.”

Carlson, who said, the DMZ felt like “to describe the end of the earth”, and Kim’s obvious that poor health and difficulty in breathing.
“It’s really the feeling we were at the end of the earth, in the middle of nowhere, with not many people, Stand in the middle of the road. It was very strange. And, I mean, right next to Kim. I mean, it would have touched him, that in the vicinity,” he said.
“And he breathed like an emphysema patient. I’m not saying that to offend, but he breathed in a worked, as he was out of breath. And even taking into account the historic Art, which I’m sure played a role in his breathlessness, but my opinion as a non-doctor was-this is a very unhealthy guy. It is very unhealthy. I mean, maybe I’m wrong… but that was the first thing I thought. This man is in very poor health.”

Carlson also said he believed Trump has been real in his relationship with Kim and claimed that the President “controlled” and “dominated” the rogue state leader.
“I think it is very sincere … is he committed a Fan of the atrocities [Kim], this is clear, but Trump thinks that he is a competent, scrappy guy … and it can’t be easy to hold, the third generations of the power in a country like this, where the ruling class is filled with 80 year old generals … it takes to keep a pretty hard man, a power in a place like North Korea, so I think that Trump respected his toughness”, he said.
“My senses … only there for an hour to watch-I think he was probably a little overwhelmed by Trump, who towers over him and is a very great man,” Carlson added. “He seemed to dominate him, and it was a kind of magnet to Trump idealism and real aggression, so that it is feel just like the colleagues. It felt like maybe an older brother-younger brother type of situation.”
Carlson said it is impossible to defend North Korea’s terrible track record on human rights and called it an “ugly place”, but also the realistic flip side of the coin.
“There is no defense of the North Korean regime, it is a monstrous regime. It is the really last of the Stalinist regimes in the world. It is a disgusting place, of course, and so there is no defense,” he said.
“On the other hand, you have to be honest about what it means to lead a country, it means to kill people. Not on the scale that the North Koreans do, but many of the countries of atrocities, including a number that we are closely associated with.”
“I’m not a relativist or anything, but it is important to be added to be honest about that,” Carlson.

“And, it is not necessarily a choice between bad people and great people. It is a choice, most of the time between the bad people and worse people. This is simply the nature of life, and certainly the kind of power, and I think that’s how the President looks. He is far less sentimental about these things, and maybe, I think, more realistic about it.”
Carlson’s one-on-one interview with the President is set to air Monday night at 8 PM ET on Fox News Channel.
