President Donald Trump frequently touts his good relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, but on Tuesday, he went as far as to suggest he wouldn’t let U.S. intelligence spy on the brutal dictator.

The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that the North Korean leader’s half-brother, Kim Jong Nam, was an informant for the CIA.

Nam was killed in February 2017, just weeks after Trump’s inauguration, by two women who ambushed him in a Malaysian airport and smeared his face with a nerve agent. North Korea denies any role in the murder.

When asked about the leader’s half-brother on Tuesday, Trump denied knowing any details.

“I don’t know anything about that,” he said. “I know that the relationship is such that that wouldn’t happen under my auspices. But I don’t know about that, nobody knows.”

Trump continued to advertise his positive relationship with the dictator on Tuesday.

“In the meantime, no nuclear testing, no major missile testing, nothing like when I first got here. When I first got here, it was a bad mess,” Trump told reporters. “We have a very good relationship together, now I can confirm it because of the letter I got yesterday, and I think that something will happen that’s going to be very positive.”

Trump’s most recent message certainly isn’t the first time he’s gone easy on Kim. In February of this year, Trump said he believed the North Korean leader when he told the president he had nothing to do with the death of American hostage Otto Warmbier.

“He felt badly about it,” Trump told reporters after he met with Kim in Vietnam. “Some really bad things happened to Otto, some really, really bad things, but he tells me he didn’t know about it, and I will take him at his word.”

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Kim is not a friend of USA or Trumps. It seems like he is making progress with NK but if I were Trump I’d use every agency at my disposal to watch Kim and that whole country like a hawk. I’d launch a special NK satellite just to watch them if needed to make sure I didn’t miss anything.

“Felt” BADLY about it”? In order for someone to “feel bad” about a horrible tragedy that happened under his WATCH; He would have to have a CONSCIENCE! That is built into every human heart to WARN us when we are headed for trouble! The cruel and depraved Dictator has a conscience that has been seared with a blow torch, completely and forever not able to function! Unless; He humbly repents of every sin and ASKS for forgiveness and mercy from God himself through his Son Jesus Christ!
