It Came From The White House

The U.S. president presented North Korea's leader with an action-movie trailer as part of their Singapore meeting.

The meeting was the first between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader.

"This is just a new beginning", Trump said while shaking hands with Kim.

It was not clear from the outset whether the leaders would get on well when they met, with Trump issuing a stark warning to Kim ahead of the meeting that this was a one-time shot for North Korea to engage in talks.

"I think he loved it", the president said.

Trump also said that he and Kim will now participate in a joint signing - but did not give any indication as to what exactly the document contained.

Mr Trump and Mr Kim reached a broad agreement that North Korea would move toward denuclearising the Korean peninsula, while the United States committed to providing security guarantees and suspending military exercises with long-time ally South Korea.

As Time reported, when he walked out onto the stage, Trump revealed it was a "tape" he had shown the chairman prior to their meeting. 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.

The two men kicked off their summit with a handshake shortly after 9 a.m. local time Tuesday - 9 p.m. Monday in NY - marking the first face-to-face encounter between a sitting USA president and a North Korean leader.

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. Though CNN reports the almost five-hour talk ended with only a "vague pledge" that North Korea will disarm, many on Twitter were more taken with what the world leaders dined on during their important discussion.

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 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. It showcases AP's overall coverage of the event.
