Kim prefers potatoes to Pompeo

Both words "Pompeo" and "potatoes" begin with "p", but Kim seemed to prefer potatoes to Pompeo during the US State Secretary's visit to Pyongyang.

According to https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/201...ompeo-meeting/

(Begin excerpts)
Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader, appears to have opted to visit a potato farm instead of meeting Mike Pompeo when the US Secretary of State was in Pyongyang over the weekend for the latest round of discussions on the future of the Korean Peninsula.

Mr Pompeo arrived in the North Korean capital on July 6 - but his three-day visit was ignored by the North Korean dictator.

Mr Pompeo’s aides were largely kept in the dark about the schedule for the visit, including where they would be staying, and repeated requests about when the secretary of state would be able to meet Mr Kim went unanswered....

The North Korean leader’s whereabouts were only revealed on Tuesday when state-run media ran a series of articles about his visit to provide “field guidance” to workers at the Junghung potato farm in distant Samjiyon County, on the border with China...

As well as a deliberate snub to Mr Pompeo, Mr Kim’s visit was significant because he chose to demonstrate North Korea’s resilience in the face of US-led sanctions on his regime.... (End excerpts)

You need to avoid FAKE news!

The Telegraph must be a bunch of liberal hacks.
