Donald Trump Seeks Asylum In North Korea Claiming Political Persecution
It was an epic moment Sunday. For the first time in American history, the President of the United States stepped across a foreign border seeking asylum.
While on a scheduled trip to Japan, Donald Trump said he wanted to, “Visit several places in Asia.” After ordering Air Force One to land on the Korean peninsula, the POTUS took the short walk across the DMZ from South Korea into North Korea. It was a solemn walk. And on the other side, waiting for Trump was Kim Jong Un, who welcomed him with open arms. Once on North Korean soil, Trump made a statement to the press.
"I was proud to step over the line. It is a great day for the world. North Korea is a beautiful place. Wonderful people. The best. America is nice too. But it is full of the media. And of course, they don’t like me. In North Korea, I am loved. They love their leader, ‘Little Rocket Man.’ He keeps getting elected. No term limits. No media trying to destroy him. No Congress trying to stop him. Very tough on borders. It is just a great place. So I had to take the opportunity to flee the witch hunts, and come to a place where I can be free. Have I defected? Say whatever you want. No one defects better than me. I look forward to a great relationship with Supreme Leader Un. And look at these little oriental press people here in North Korea. They love me. They keep taking my picture. I love the oriental people, and their fortune cookies. So I am here as a political prisoner seeking the love and freedom of the great people of Korea.”
After talking for a few minutes, the two leaders headed back to the South Korean side of the border. After shaking hands, Kim Jong Un left Trump and went back to his homeland. Trump was asked what happened. “Well, Rocket Man said that my request for asylum was accepted. I asked him if I could be President of North Korea. He told me that would never happen. He said, ‘The North Korean people have standards.’ I respect that. It is a horrible thing. They are incredibly stupid. But I have a deep respect for them. So I decided to come back to a place where people will at least elect me twice.”
North Korean state media published a different story. According to the N.K. Minister of Information, “President Donald Trump left the sovereign nation of North Korea after it was discovered that he had crossed the border with no documentation. Upon learning that he would have to spend time in a detention camp until his case is cleared up, he decided to return to life in America.”
