Reports of Kim Jong Un’s surgery and poor health “incorrect,” Trump insists

President's comments come as uncertainty grows in Washington about status of North Korean leader's health

A CNN report earlier this week claiming that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un may be in "grave danger" following recent surgery was "incorrect," U.S. President Donald Trump said Thursday.

The comments come as rumors have swirled in recent days about the status of the DPRK leader's health, following a news article on Monday from the Seoul-based website Daily NK claiming that Kim was recovering from a cardiovascular medical procedure.
