Trump Offends Millions With Salute to North Korean General

According to CNN during his brief trip to Singapore for a summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, President Trump was introduced to a North Korean General.

In an unprecedented and highly questionable act, Trump saluted the authoritarian army general.

Trump's decision to salute a high-ranking general in a country with a long and rife history of human rights abuses struck many Americans as insulting to the tens of thousands of North Koreans who have suffered abuse, torture, and death under Kim's brutal regime.
