“We don’t know” if Kim Jong Un health rumors are true, Trump says

Comments follow widespread reports suggesting North Korean leader had undergone heart operation

U.S. President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he doesn't know as-yet-unconfirmed reports about North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's deteriorating health are true, while stressing that, if they are, "I wish him well."

The comments are the first from the U.S. President since reports first emerged on Monday night suggesting the DPRK leader was suffering from ill health and had undergone a “cardiovascular procedure."
