I find that someone who orders the killing of his own brother cares all that much about another suffering. But he might care about the possibility, rare that it may be, that it might lead to moves against him. That and the tough sanctions is likely what’s brining him to the table.
A video of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un crying about his country’s terrible economy while surveying its coast has reportedly made the rounds in the country’s leadership — and it could be a sign he’s ready to cave into President Donald Trump in negotiations.
In the alleged video, which Japan’s Asahi Shinbum quoted a defector with contacts inside the country has described, a narrator explains Kim is crying that he can’t improve North Korea’s economy.
The defector said the video surfaced in April and high ranking members of North Korea’s ruling party viewed it, possibly in an official message from Kim to the party.
