Fox News host sorry for referring to Trump, Kim as ‘two dictators’

Fox News host sorry for referring to Trump, Kim as ‘two dictators’

The gaffe was made on Sunday during a Fox and Friends segment when Huntsman turned to Trumpian Anthony Scaramucci and said this: "This is history".

But Twitter users were hung up on Huntsman's choice of words, referring to them as some of Fox News' most honest reporting about Trump. "Anthony, talk to us about this moment. This is history. We are living-regardless of what happens in that meeting between the two dictators-what we are seeing right now, this is history".

Scaramucci agreed that Trump is a "disruptive" force in the world.

"This is history", Huntsman said over video showing Trump arriving in Singapore ahead of Tuesday's meeting with Kim.

The two leaders are staying at separate hotels during the summit, with Kim opting for the St Regis and President Trump choosing the Shangri La.

"I feel that Kim Jong Un wants to do something great for his people, and he has that opportunity". And he won't have that opportunity again.

One social media user named Thom Rutledge wrote: "What Abby said so nonchalantly is of more historic significance that Trump being there".

Looking for news you can trust?

"I don't think I have to prepare very much". I did not mean that, my mistake.

UPDATE: Later in the broadcast, Fox & Friends host Abby Huntsman apologized for the slip.
