May 5, 2019 10:39 a.m.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Sunday morning attempted to clean up President Donald Trump’s tweet declaring that he was “with” North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, even after North Korea’s latest round of missile testing and Otto Warmbier’s death.

“This is a President who put on the toughest sanctions in the history of the world on North Korea,” Pompeo told Jonathan Karl during ABC News’ “This Week.”

“The President understands the challenges. The President deeply understands this,” Pompeo continued. “We’re working towards finding a path forward with Chairman Kim, to denuclearize his country diplomatically.”
