The Wall Street Journal’s White House reporter, Michael C. Bender, noticed that Trump redecorated the White House with pictures of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Bender noted that where the pictures of Kim Jong Un are now placed used to be pictures of Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron.

There are a total of six new photos. Three of the photos are from the Singapore summit. Another photo shows a group of Americans coming back to the U.S. after being released from a North Korean prison. The other two photos show a White House visit by top North Korean aide, Kim Yong Chol, who gave Trump a personal letter from Kim.
Last month, after Macron’s state visit to Washington D.C., there were photos of his visit displayed on the top of a West Wing staircase.

However, now they have been replaced by photos of Trump and Kim Jong Un.
The French love is still evident in the White House.

The new photos come shortly after Trump returned from his meeting with Kim in Singapore.
Since he has been back, he has been repeatedly praising the North Korean dictator, even though Kim is known for human rights violations.
Just last week, during an interview with Fox News, Trump said that he wants “his people” to treat him the way North Koreans treat Kim. Trump stated, “He’s the head of a country, and I mean he’s the strong head. Don’t let anyone think anything different. He speaks and his people sit up at attention. I want my people to do the same.”
