During Donald Trump's meeting with Kim Jong Un, the US president apparently presented his North Korean counterpart with a really weird video of what his country could look like on the worldwide stage.
After hours of discussions, the two men signed an agreement committing the United States to unspecified "security guarantees" in exchange for a denuclearized Korean peninsula.
Asked how he could be assured Kim would keep his word, Trump said he just knew.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in meanwhile hailed the outcome of the Singapore Summit, saying the "historic event" had ended the last Cold War conflict. Journalists in attendance reported that the North Korean leader appeared "stunned" by the remarks - although he reportedly smiled after sitting down. He added that North Korea's past regime "was managed in permanent lies". The VFW sent a June 6 letter to President Trump to urge him to make the issue part of the negotiation. The stroll was rehearsed for days, with White House staffers playing the roles of the two leaders before Trump and Kim did it for real, a White House official said.
In what is somehow not the craziest thing to happen on Monday night, former basketball player turned cryptocurrency spokesman/unofficial ambassador to North Korea, Dennis Rodman shouted out Eddie Vedder during a weepy interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo.More news: Iran warns North Korea of U.S. breach of promise
In April, Kim Jong-un made a symbolic gesture against the "wicked Japanese imperialists" by changing North Korea's time zone to align with South Korea.
"Otto did not die in vain", Trump said as he discussed North Korea's human rights record. So number one we save money, a lot, and number two, it really is something that I think they [North Korea] very much appreciate.
At one point, Trump pointed down to the ground and Kim seemed to nod, playing along in what was a carefully choreographed moment.
THE INTERNATIONAL community has welcomed the historic US-North Korea meeting as a milestone to "full denuclearisation" that will resolve tensions over the Korean Peninsula and open a path to global peace. North Korean and USA journalists argued and elbowed one another for almost 20 minutes jostling for position to capture the moment when Trump and Kim entered the room.
