Daughter of US Envoy to Russia Apologizes for Calling Trump, Kim 'Dictators'

While reporting live on President Trump's arrival in Singapore on Sunday for his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Fox & Friends host Abby Huntsman slipped, and referred to both men as "dictators."

Guest and former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci didn't catch it.

Scaramucci brushed right past Huntsman's apparent gaffe and instead offered praise for Trump's foreign policy strategy.

Ms Huntsman is the daughter of U.S. ambassador to Russian Federation and former Republican presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman.

Scaramucci gave some long-winded answer about Trump being a risk taker, and either didn't notice the slip-up or just happened to be thinking the exact same thing.

President Trump is set to meet Kim Jong-un for the first time at their summit on Tuesday on the resort island of Sentosa.

The meeting has been downplayed by Trump in recent days.

Donald Trump arrived in Singapore directly from Quebec, Canada after attending G7 summit on Sunday.

"I feel that Kim Jong Un wants to do something great for his people, and he has that opportunity. It's never going to be there again", Trump said on Saturday.

Looking for news you can trust?

"As you know on live TV, sometimes you don't always say things perfectly. Everyone makes mistakes. We're all human". But catching a Freudian slip that shades Trump coming from the mouth of a Fox and Friends host?! "I did not mean that my mistake, so I apologise for that." said Abby.
