(ConservativePeak.com)- Kim Jong Un, the communist dictator of North Korea, has expressed his “warm greetings” to President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump. The North Korean leader said that he hopes both will recover soon, after learning that they had both tested positive for the Chinese coronavirus.
In stands in stark contrast to the many Democrats who have wished the president dead. A poll from Politico and Morning Consult released over the weekend showed that some 40% of Democrats were “happy” to learn that President Donald Trump had contracted the disease.
The Korean Central News Agency reported from Pyongyang, North Korea’s capital city, over the weekend that Kim Jong Un “offered his sympathy to the president and the first lady.”

“He sincerely hoped that they would recover as soon as possible,” the agency added. “He hoped they will surely overcome it. He sent his warm greetings to them.”
And while one of the most authoritarian and isolationist leaders in the world is capable of wishing the president well, some Democratic officials and politicians can’t do the same.
Far-left Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar issued a statement on Friday after the president announced he had tested positive for the virus. Omar used it as an opportunity to attack the president and did not wish him well.
“As someone who lost my own father to this virus and seen the pain it causes, I do not wish it on anyone. Over 200,000 people have now died while this Administration actively ignores public health guidance and suppresses science,” she said. “For months, we have been hoping for a simple acknowledgement from the president-to hear the words, ‘We will get through this together.’ And now we only hear those words when it is about him-not the hundreds of thousands of people who have lost their lives, and the millions whose families have been touched by it because of his malfeasance.”
Even China wished the president well, too – and everyone knows the president’s attitude to China over the COVID-19 outbreak. Xi Jinping, the President of communist China, said that he wishes President Trump a “speedy recovery.”
What does it say when Democrats say they are “happy” that the president has caught a deadly disease, but foreign adversaries
