New York — A Fox News host has accidentally referred to the highly anticipated summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as a meeting of "two dictators."
"Fox & Friends" co-host Abby Huntsman made the comment on Sunday as TV footage showed the Republican president landing in Singapore for a summit with Kim on Tuesday. Guest and former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci didn't catch it.
But the daughter of US Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman later apologised on air for what she had said. Her gaffe still took off on Twitter.
So Abby Huntsman actually told the truth when she called Trump a dictator. Well, he's a wannabe dictator. He is also an embarrassing POS we need to oust. VOTE! #Resist
Fox News' Abby Huntsman referred to Donald Trump as a dictator (which might be the most honest thing they report today) — but the weird thing is that no one on the show even seemed to notice. https://t.co/EBXOp4w60l

The two leaders arrived in Singapore on Sunday for their talks, which initially were billed as an effort to rid North Korea of its nuclear weapons. The meeting has been downplayed by Trump in recent days.
