White House releases menu for working lunch with Kim

White House releases menu for working lunch with Kim

Kim Jong-un meeting Donald Trump during their historic summit in Singapore on June 12, 2018 in Singapore.

When US President Donald Trump sat down to make the case for peace to North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un on Tuesday, he rolled out what amounted to a movie trailer starring the two leaders.

Members of the North Korean dictator's entourage will also be present.

And speaking several hours into their meeting, Trump said it had been: "A really fantastic meeting".

Reporters first got a look at this absolutely batshit 4-minute video when it was played just before Trump emerged after the Singapore summit to answer questions. "So we look nice and handsome and thin and ideal?" "Of those alive today, only a small number will leave a lasting impact, and only the very few will make decisions or take actions that renew their homeland and change the course of history".




Having aides in meetings with adversaries is known as a way of providing the President with protection, as it prevents comments from being misinterpreted. But he added "our hostages" are back home and testing, research and launches have stopped. I think we're going to have a great discussion.

"He won't have that opportunity again", the US president added. Trump left that summit early and, as he flew to Singapore, tweeted that he was yanking the USA out of the group's traditional closing statement.

But the apparent showing off was brought to an abrupt halt moments later when the same aide quickly shut the door of the Beast and ushered Trump as well as Kim away from the presidential auto.

"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".

He would not say whether that included the possibility of withdrawing US troops from the Korean Peninsula, but said the USA was "prepared to take what will be security assurances that are different, unique, than America's been willing to provide previously". In case of the United States and North Korea, it didn't happen as extensively as one would expect for North Korea is too isolated a country yet to engage in all-out diplomatic parleys. It showcases AP's overall coverage of the event.
