According to former White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders’ forthcoming memoir, President Donald Trump reacted with a vile joke when North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un winked at her.

According to Sanders, Trump told her that she should go to North Korea and “take one for the team”. According to an excerpt from the book, “Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House”, accessed by The Guardian, Jong-Un winked at Sanders during a nuclear summit in Singapore.

“Kim Jong Un hit on you! He did! He fucking hit on you!” the president laughed after Sanders relayed the 2018 incident to him and then-chief of staff John Kelly as they drove to the airport post the summit, the report states.

Sanders writes that she was taking notes during the summit when she found the dictator staring at her when they made eye-contact, he appeared to wink at her.

“All I could think was, ‘What just happened? Surely Kim Jong Un did not just mark me!?’” she wrote.

“Well, Sarah, that settles it. You’re going to North Korea and taking one for the team! Your husband and kids will miss you, but you’ll be a hero to your country!” Trump joked as he and Kelly burst into laughter, she reportedly wrote.
