Donald Trump Jr. says his father only praised Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Un, and Xi Jinping in order to ‘play’ them

Donald Trump Jr. said on Wednesday that the praise his father, former President Donald Trump, showered on world leaders like China’s Xi Jinping, North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, and Russia’s Vladimir Putin was all part of a strategy to “play” them.

In a video posted on his Rumble account, Trump Jr. said his father is someone who knows how to deal with “powerful men” and that he “had it right all along” when it came to dealing with foreign leaders.

“So my father understands that, you know, men will blow up deals over ego. I’ve seen it my whole life, and my father’s certainly seen it. Because he’s dealt with powerful, egotistical people his entire life. He’s built a brand around dealing with those people. World leaders aren’t any different,” Trump Jr. said.

“He knew exactly how to play these guys, and he played it like a fiddle,” he added, while also noting that his father’s flattery of foreign leaders was not an act of “capitulation.”
