New York: Republican front-runner Donald Trump has praised North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, saying he is incredible and that he should be given credit for murdering his relatives.

Trump said that Kim was like a 'maniac' but one has to give him credit for consolidating power to murder his rival relatives.

"He goes in, he takes over, he's the boss. It's incredible," Trump said, according to The New York Post.

Trump's comment comes after North Korea tested a hydrogen bomb last week.

It was not the first time that Trump praised an antagonist of the US. He has previously received flak for accepting praise from Russian President Vladimir Putin, calling him a 'highly respected' man.
