Fox News host Abby Huntsman apologized on Sunday after she referred to an upcoming summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as a meeting between “two dictators.”
Huntsman, who is the daughter of U.S. Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman, made the comment on “Fox and Friends Weekend” as Trump arrived in Singapore for his meeting with Kim, where the two are set to talk about the possibility of Pyongyang’s denuclearization.
“There we have him. There is the president of the United States, Donald Trump, about to walk down those stairs, stepping foot in Singapore as we await this historic summit with the North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un,” Huntsman said.
“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,” she said.
The host later apologized on air after facing blowback for the remark.
“Apologized on the show. I’ll never claim to be a perfect human being. We all have slip ups in life, I have many. Now let’s all move on to things that actually matter,” Huntsman said in a tweet.
