Russian state media has claimed Donald Trump is more dangerous than North Korean despot Kim Jong-un. 

A news presenter called Dmitry Kiselyov made the claim on his show 'Vesti Nedeli', which is broadcasted by the All-Russia State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company (VGTRK). 

He said the world was "a hair's breadth" from breaking out in nuclear war because of the clash between the two personalities - Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un. 

Kiselyov claimed out of those two, it was Trump who was more dangerous because he's more "impulsive and unpredictable."

The broadcast marks a change in stance for Russian state TV. When Mr Trump won the November election in 2016, Russian leaders was declared to be "congratulating themselves" at the news. 

However, tensions between the two countries have risen in the wake of a US airstrike on a Syrian airbase, where the chemical attack on Khan Sheikhun was thought to been launched.

A Kremlin spokesman declined to comment on Kiselyov's position was the same as the one held by the Russian government.
