WASHINGTON – North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump agree with their criticism of former Vice President Joe Biden, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Sunday in an exclusive interview on NBC's "Meet the Press."
Speeches from Japan, where she accompanies the president, defended Sanders Trump to evoke North Korea's criticism of the Democratic President's hope. And she accused the Obama administration of creating "messes" in places like North Korea, which Trump has to clean up.  "I think they agree with their assessment of former Vice President Joe Biden," she said about Trump and Kim. "The president needs no one else to give him an assessment of Joe Biden. He has given his assessment a number of times. I think you've seen it. I'm sure you've covered it on your program. The president looked at him and his administration with President Obama fails for eight years. "
She said that Trump has" cleaned a lot of the fairs left behind. We should not even be in the position that we have to deal with North Korea on the level we are if they had done their work in the first place. "
" They failed with Iran, they failed with North Korea, they failed to trade, "she said." And we finally have a president who is tough with these countries. We have imposed harsher sanctions on North Korea than the Obama administration has ever done, but at the same time the president wants to develop this relationship. "
Biden has been under increasing criticism from the president since announcing his candidacy last month. On Saturday, Trump responded to concerns over recent North Korean missile tests, saying he is convinced of his relationship with Kim and seems to support foreign leader's criticism of Biden.
In recent days, the North Korean central news agency, run by the state, has taken an increasingly hostile tone towards Biden with rhetorical scaling more hostile as Trump raises its own criticism of its potential 2020 challenger.
A report from May 21 pays Biden as "ruthless and pointless, seized by ambitions for power" and a "fool of low IQ".  Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates responded to both the North Koreans and Trump in a statement earlier this week and argued for "given Vice-President Bids record to stand up for US values and interests, it is n It is not surprising that North Korea prefers that Donald Trump stays in the White House. "
" "As Vice President Biden said in Philadelphia, Donald Trump includes dictators and tyrants such as Putin and Kim Jung, while advancing our closest allies. is antithetical to who we are and it needs to be changed, "said Bates.
During the Sunday interview, Sanders repeated the President's statements on North Korea's latest arms tests that came months after a February summit between the two leaders ended without
On Saturday, National Security Adviser John Bolton said the missile tests were a violation of UN resolutions a claim that Trump seemed to downplay in his public tweet.
But despite the lack of agreement on the nuclear peninsula, Sanders said that still has come from attempts to "develop" the relationship between the two countries.
"There have been steps that have moved us. For a considerable period there was no missile test. We got hostages back to the US and remnants of American warlords. I don't know how to say it's not something, "she said.
"For me it is definitely something. And I know it's something for the families of the people they came home."
