Trump showed Kim movie trailer depicting them as heroes at Singapore summit

Trump showed Kim movie trailer depicting them as heroes at Singapore summit

At this point during the summit, Mr. Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had already greeted each other, engaged in a one-on-one meeting and another with their top advisers, as well as a working lunch.

He gestured for an aide to open the door to the auto - many of whose features are highly classified - and even appeared to be inviting the North Korean despot in for a look around.

Trump said that Kim and his aides "loved" watching it, and hoped they would make it a reality.

According to a menu card published from the White House, Mr Kim and Mr Trump had a plethora of western, Korean, Chinese and Malay dishes to choose from at the swanky Capella hotel in Singapore. "So we look nice and handsome and thin and flawless?" You have South Korea, you have China, and they own the land in the middle.

When asked about the video montage played ahead of the press conference, Trump said: "We had it made". Kim has been accused of horrific rights abuses against his people.

Trump responded to such commentary on Twitter, saying: "The fact that I am having a meeting is a major loss for the US, say the haters & losers". "I want to express my gratitude to President Trump to make this meeting happen".

This Tuesday marked a historic moment in U.S. Trump left that summit early and, as he flew to Singapore, tweeted that he was yanking the US out of the group's traditional closing statement.

"The report came on the heels of the two leaders met for the first time in Singapore Tuesday for an historic summit on eliminating North Korea's nuclear weapons".

After shaking hands again with Kim in front of the cameras, Trump gave a thumbs-up before starting the first meeting between an incumbent USA president and a DPRK leader. "A new world can begin today, one of friendship, respect and goodwill", said the trailer's dramatic voiceover as images of militarization, North Korea, and the United States were spotlighted. In extraordinarily condescending terms, it lays out how North Korea has a choice between a decadent, peaceful future full of speedboats or one where they starve to death.
