US President Donald Trump welcomed six North Korean defectors to the Oval Office today, a high profile and potentially provocative show of support. The group – whose stories Trump described as “incredible and truly inspirational” – included a banker with knowledge of the regime’s overseas operations, a former political prisoner and amputee Ji Seong-ho. Seong-ho escaped from North Korea in 2006 and was given a place of honour just seats away from First Lady Melania Trump at Tuesday’s State of the Union address.
