Nearly 300 North Koreans surrender in Malaysia for overstaying

The Trump administration has repeated that all options are on the table, which includes the possibility of military action, or a pre-emptive strike, if its current strategy of maximum pressure and engagement toward North Korea, namely through China, falls through.

"The world is a hair's breadth away from a real nuclear war with all its catastrophic consequences", Kiselyov warned his viewers.

On April 16, the dialog on Russian state-sponsored TV took on a different tone when pro-Kremlin anchor Dmitry Kiselyov claimed US President Donald Trump was more unsafe and unpredictable than North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Do you remember when George W. Bush declared North Korea part of the axis of evil and he said "The United States of America will not permit the world's most unsafe regimes to threaten us with the world's most destructive weapons".

"Trump is more impulsive and unpredictable than Kim Jong-un", said Dmitry Kiselyov on his show, "Vesti Nedelyi". "The Kim Jong-un regime is afraid of me", the candidate said on his campaign trail in Daegu, 302 kilometers southeast of Seoul.

If state TV is a guide, his tough talk on North Korea's nuclear program and decision to despatch a naval strike force to the region appear to have buried any Russian hopes that he might intervene less in foreign affairs than his predecessors. "His position is close, but not every time", said Peskov.

Like much of Russia's state-controlled media, Kiselyov initially praised Trump in the weeks before and after his election.

The US attack in Syria, against Russian ally President Bashar Assad, fuelled deepening disillusionment in the Kremlin with the Trump Administration.

A survey by state pollster VTsIOM showed on Monday that the percentage of Russians who hold a negative view of Trump has jumped to 39 from seven percent in a month, and that feelings of distrust and disappointment towards him have grown too.

The network says the US relationship with China and the president's immigration policy will also be discussed.

He continued, "I hope there's going to be peace, but they've been talking with this gentleman for a long time", in reference to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

"You look at different things over the years with President Obama", Trump added.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov remained wary that U.S. military actions in Syria were the last of their kind.

In an interview with "Fox & Friends", Trump said he would not rule out a military strike if North Korea continues to conduct missile tests.
