"So we look nice and handsome and thin? And Perfect?"
Just because Trump is off to make history, doesn’t mean he can’t be vain.
The US president asked the reporters during his lunch with Kim at the summit on Tuesday: “Getting a good picture, everybody? So we look nice and handsome and thin? And Perfect?”
Hearing Trump’s comment, Kim looked rather flabbergasted and uncomfortable. It is entirely possible that Trump meant what he said, or it could have been his attempt at humour during the landmark summit.
It also could have been that Kim was shocked to see people being issued instructions to make him look good. After all, the good citizens of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea are reared to venerate their supreme leader from childbirth.
But all seems well as the meeting seemed to have ended smoothly.
"Today, we had a historic meeting and decided to leave the past behind," Kim said through a translator at the end of the summit.
"The world will see a major change."
As long as it’s not World War 3, we’re cool.
