MSNBC contributor Kurt Eichenwald said on “AM Joy” Saturday that he thinks President Trump would let Kim Jong-Un tour America’s nuclear facilities in exchange for praise.
The segment was about Trump’s rumored decision to grant amnesty to DACA recipients in exchange for border security. Eichenwald made the case that Trump will do anything for praise, and doesn’t stick to solid principles.
Eichenwald said, “The people who are Trump supporters, who think that he cares about them–he doesn’t.”
“What he cares about and has always cared about and from the first day I met him is, ‘Am I getting praise?'”
“The reality is if Kim Jong-Un of North Korea got a little smart and stood up and started praising Donald Trump, you know, he’d touring our nuclear facilities by morning,” Eichenwald said.
MSNBC host Joy Reid responded, “Yeah! I kind of get the sense that might be true.”
