Eerie Similarities Between Trump, Putin, ISIS & Kim Jong Un

Hell, it's often impossible to differentiate North Korea's propaganda from Trump's political messaging.

For instance, see if you can tell which of these quotes is from Donald Trump, which was said by Vladimir Putin, and which was said by Kim Jong-un:

The American "military is a disaster."

America is a "third-world country."
