Trump seems confused about who is in charge of North Korea

"It doesn't work that way", Trump told "Fox & Friends" co-host Ainsley Earhardt when she asked whether he has ruled out a military strike against North Korea.

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?" "Trump is more impulsive and unpredictable than Kim Jong Un", he told viewers of his prime-time Sunday "Vesti Nedelyi" program, which earlier this year carried paeans to Trump for his pledge to warm up relations with Russian Federation. "The Kim Jong-un regime is afraid of me", the candidate said on his campaign trail in Daegu, 302 kilometers southeast of Seoul.

Trump appears to be attempting to pressure North Korea into abandoning their nuclear programme alongside China, Japan and South Korea.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov declined to say whether Kiselyov's views chimed with the Kremlin's, but said his opinions weren't necessarily always interchangeable with the official position.

Like much of Russia's state-controlled media, Kiselyov initially praised Trump in the weeks before and after his election.

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

In this segment we also cover the media trying to figure out "the real Donald Trump".

"Donald Trump's aggressive behavior has resurrected distrust and ill-will towards America, something that has characterized Russian society for the last two decades".

He continued, "I hope there's going to be peace, but they've been talking with this gentleman for a long time", in reference to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. "You look at different things over the years with President [Barack] Obama".

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov remained wary that USA military actions in Syria were the last of their kind.

Despite annexing Ukraine's Crimea region in 2014 and continuing to back pro-Russian separatists in east Ukraine, Moscow has long criticized successive US presidents for interfering in other countries' affairs.
