Kremlin Distances Itself From Controversial Trump Comments

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".

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.

Reuters reported on Monday that Russian officials are losing hope for warming relations with the usa, citing Trump's missile strike on a Syrian airbase, the massive bomb dropped on Afghanistan and the administration's refusal to halt sanctions related to Crimea.

The Kremlin has distanced itself from statements made by controversial TV host Dmitry Kiselev, who compared U.S. President Donald Trump with North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un on his show aired by major local state-run network Rossiya.

Russian state television has no doubt who is unpredictable enough to bring the world to war in the North Korean crisis, and it's not the reclusive communist dictator Kim Jong-Un. Both are risky, but who is more unsafe? A handful of prominent state news outlets including the evening TV bulletin even omitted the Flynn story from their broadcasts, and have shown reduced enthusiasm for the administration since.

According to Kiselyov, Trump is "more impulsive and unpredictable" than the North Korean leader because he has "limited global experience, unpredictability, and a readiness to go to war". He added that both men shared the characteristics of having “limited global experience, unpredictability, and a readiness to go to war.”.


“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.

"Kisleyov and his colleagues on other channels also went after Trump's family, noting that Kim hadn't given his four-year-old daughter an office in his residence, in contrast to Trump's appointment of his 35-year-old daughter, Ivanka, to a White House role".

He hailed Mr Trump's shock victory saying it would restore relations between Moscow and Washington which had deteriorated following Russia's intervention in Ukraine and Syria. The scandal is still pushed by Obama controlled operatives within the Central Intelligence Agency and the corporate American media.

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. A survey conducted by the state-run pollster VTsIOM released on Monday found that 39 per cent of Russians hold a negative opinion of Mr Trump, versus only 7 per cent in March.

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

The US attack in Syria, against Russian ally President Bashar al-Assad, fuelled a deepening disillusionment in the Kremlin with the Trump administration. "So his viewpoints shouldn't be identified with the official position". "He is not allowed to deviate from the agenda set by others in the shadows". In January he was the only public figure mentioned more often than Putin in Russia - the rise in coverage of Trump was linked with speculation that a potentially pro-Russian policy might lead to lifting of Ukraine-related sanctions. Mr Lavrov spoke after US Vice President Mike Pence said "the era of strategic patience is over", while on a visit to the demilitarised zone between South and North Korea on Monday.
