Bill Richardson: Kim Jong-Un ‘Has Been the Victim of a Lot of Bad Press’

Friday on MSNBC’s “New Nation,” former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and former Gov. Bill Richardson (D-NM) said North Korea’s Kim Jong Un asking for a summit with South Korea is simply the dictator reaching out after being “the victim of a lot of bad press.”

Richardson said, “He has been the victim, Kim Jong Un, of a lot of bad press, a lot of bad international attention, with the Sony hacking, with taken  to the International Criminal Court by some U.N. countries, a number of other very destabilizing moves that he has made, shooting the missiles, nuclear testing. So perhaps what hes doing is saying ‘look I’m going to start the new year with a positive step,’ a potential  summit.”
