North Korea's state-run newspaper praises Donald Trump as 'wise politician'

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- North Korea is getting involved in the U.S. presidential election, throwing some support behind Donald Trump.

A new editorial in the state-run newspaper "DPRK Today" praises Trump, calling him a "wise politician," and a "far-sighted candidate."

The editorial continues on to call Hillary Clinton "dull" and says that Americans should all vote for Trump.

The article was not written by a North Korean official, but the fact it appears in a state-run newspaper is fairly significant.

The paper praises Trump's foreign policy speech in Washington, D.C., where he threatened to withdraw U.S. forces from South Korea if Seoul didn't pay more for its defense.
