President Donald Trump said he wants people to “sit up in attention” when he speaks, similar to what North Korea’s citizens do when their leader Kim Jong-un addresses the nation.
Trump spoke with “Fox & Friends” near the White House on Friday, commending Kim for his leadership.

“Hey, he’s the head of a country, and I mean, he’s the strong head, don’t let anyone think anything different,” Trump told host Steve Doocy.
“He speaks and his people sit up at attention. I want my people to do the same,” he added.

The remark has caused an uproar online, but later speaking with reporters after the Fox interview, Trump insisted that he was making a joke.
“What did you mean just now when you said you wished Americans would sit up at attention when you spoke?” one reporter asked.

Trump replied, “I’m kidding. You don’t understand sarcasm. Who are you with? You’re with CNN? Hey, you are the worst.”
