North Korea’s state press is praising presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump, saying he is a “wise politician.”

BBC reports that experts said the DPRK Today editorial is “not official policy but probably reflected Pyongyang’s thinking.”

The editorial appeared to approve of Trump’s foreign policy, suggesting that Trump’s comments about not entering the conflict between both North and South Korea is “fortunate from North Koreans’ perspective.”

The editorial’s author suggested American voters should not support likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and called her “dull.”
