- President Donald Trump jokingly asked reporters to make him and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un look “nice, handsome, and thin.”
- Trump and Kim met Tuesday for a historic diplomatic summit.
President Donald Trump instructed photographers to make him and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un look “nice, handsome, and thin” after their working lunch during the summit in Singapore on Tuesday.
“Very nice. Getting a good picture everybody, so we look nice and handsome and thin? Beautiful. Perfect,” Trump said.
The working lunch was the final part of the summit between Trump and Kim. It followed a public greeting, one-on-one meeting, and expanded bilateral meeting.
Also present from the US delegation were White House chief of staff John Kelly, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, national security advisor John Bolton, press secretary Sarah Sanders, ambassador Sung Kim, and National Security Council Asia Director Matt Pottinger.
While there were translators present, it’s likely Kim understands much more English than he lets on, according to one of his former high school teachers.
