North Korea newspaper editorial praises "wise politician" Trump

North Korean state media praised US presidential candidate Donald Trump as a "far-sighted" and "wise politician," news reports said Wednesday.

The article, by Han Yong Mook, was published in the official Pyongyang media outlet DPRK Today, according to NK News.

"In my personal opinion, there are many positive aspects to Trump's 'inflammatory policies,'" wrote the author, who described himself as a scholar.

Trump suggested last month that he would be willing to meet with North Korean leaders over their nuclear ambitions, a departure from the previous US policy of trying to isolate Pyongyang.
