Reuters reported on Monday that Russian officials are losing hope for warming relations with the usa, citing Trump's missile strike on a Syrian airbase, the massive bomb dropped on Afghanistan and the administration's refusal to halt sanctions related to Crimea.
"Trump is more impulsive and unpredictable than Kim Jong-un", Kiselyov said on his Sunday-night program, according to a translation from Bloomberg.
Newsmax reports, "In the latest sign of the Kremlin's abrupt about-face on its erstwhile American hero, Kiselyov pronounced Trump "more dangerous" than his North Korean counterpart".
"This gentleman" refers to North Korea leader Kim Jong-un.
It's a salient issue this week, after Vice President Mike Pence visited South Korea and threatened a military response to the regime of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un unless the country abandons its pursuit of nuclear weapons.
Dmitry Peskov told reporters on April 17 that comments made by Channel One's anchor Dmitry Kiselyov often, but not always, matched Kremlin thinking.

"The U.S. missile strike on Syria was a "cold shower" for many Russians", said Valery Fedorov, the general director of Russian pollster VTsIOM.
"Donald Trump's aggressive behavior has resurrected distrust and ill-will towards America, something that has characterized Russian society for the last two decades", continued Fedorov. I hope things work out well.
Since then, Channel One and other Russian Federation media firms have become increasingly critical of the USA president.
The Kremlin realizes however, those same officials say, that the process will be harder and take longer than originally thought and the result is likely to be more limited in scope.
"You look at different things over the years with President Obama", Trump added. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi called Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov to plea for help.
In an interview with "Fox & Friends", Trump said he would not rule out a military strike if North Korea continues to conduct missile tests.
