What Kim-Trump's handshake reveals about historic meeting in Singapore

"US GovernmentA frame from the video showing Kim as a star of the film".

Trump personally showed it to his new friend, and the White House played it before the president's press conference.

The video was produced by the USA government to help persuade Kim to make a deal, a White House official said. Trump showed off his new tattoo. 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. To illustrate the point, ballistic missiles are shown in reverse motion, pulling back into their launch silos.

Inclusion of interpreters in such high-profile summits is not something new but for a summit between a United States president and a North Korean leader, they assume utmost significance because the chances of misinterpretation and misunderstanding are too high.

"I think he loved it", said Trump.

Now we get the views from two people to whom we have turned many times throughout the a year ago, first on threats between the USA and North Korea and now negotiations.

It isn't clear what conditions Pyongyang might be willing to accept for relinquishing their nukes, so Kim and Trump will first need to establish a communications channel and a mutual understanding of denuclearization.

It went on: "The two top leaders gladly accepted each other's invitation, convinced that it would serve as another important occasion for improved [North Korea]-U.S. relations".

Professor John Hajek from the University of Melbourne's School of Languages and Linguistics said the US President was "doing all the talking" and had the "upper hand" when the two met for their historic meeting. "Propaganda, all that stuff, that's not something we'd get involved in". Trump later promised to end "war games" with ally South Korea, a concession to Kim that appeared to catch the Pentagon and Seoul's government off guard and sowed confusion among Republicans in Washington.
