Trump Meets Kim Jong Un, Steps Inside North Korea


President Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to set foot on North Korean soil when he walked over into the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) that divides the Korean peninsula. It was there that the president held an impromptu and historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The two leaders met for roughly 45-minute-long and President Trump told reporters he and Kim had agreed to restart negotiations in the hopes of brokering a deal to start the full denuclearization of the peninsula. Trump also invited Kim to the White House to continue talks.

The president called the meeting a "big moment" after years of bitter hostility between the two countries and that stepping over the demarcation line was "a great honor," while Kim said the event "has a lot of significance because it means that we want to bring an end to the unpleasant past" and called it a "courageous and determined act."
