WH: Trump Was Showing ‘Common Courtesy’ By Saluting NK General

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Thursday that President Donald Trump was simply displaying “common courtesy” when he saluted a North Korean general earlier this week.

“It’s a common courtesy when a military official from another government salutes that you return that,” she said.

Video from North Korean state television showed Trump saluting the North Korean general.
