Reagan II: Dementia Boogaloo?

Or is it just plain ignernce? As in, "You know, this Kim gentleman, he's been in charge in Korea since, like, forever."

T.P. notes Trump apparently has no idea.
“They’ve been talking with this gentleman for a long time,” Trump said, apparently referencing former American presidents’ negotiations with North Korea. “You read Clinton’s book, he said, ‘Oh, we made such a great peace deal,’ and it was a joke.”

“You look at different things over the years with President Obama,” Trump added. “Everybody has been outplayed, they’ve all been outplayed by this gentleman, and we’ll see what happens.”

But the “gentleman” Trump referred to, Kim Jong-un, has only been in power since the 2011 death of his father, Kim Jong-il, so he certainly never negotiated with President Clinton. In fact, the October 1994 Clinton “peace deal” that Trump referred to in this interview was largely negotiated before the death of Kim Il-sung, Kim Jung-un’s grandfather, in July of that year.
