Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un become one in world media

The French public found a sinister sight on their newsstands on Thursday: The front cover of the left-leaning newspaper Libération, featured a photoshopped image of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un superimposed on the face of U.S. President Donald Trump.
Kim Jong Un’s smiling “chubby face”—as it was once described in a scathing remark by Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte—was clearly recognizable despite Trump’s trademark blond hairdo and flaming red tie.
The newspaper’s headline referred to a “special affinity” between the two leaders, making wordplay from the French expression atomes crochus, which means to have chemistry with someone but literally features the word atom, in reference to the escalating nuclear threats.
