“I feel really great. We’ll have a great discussion,” Trump said to the press as the two leaders sat briefly. “This will be tremendously successful. It’s my honor. We will have a terrific relationship.”

Kim commented that the pair overcame obstacles to be at the summit.

“It was not easy to get here,” Kim said (via an interpreter). “For us, the past has been holding us back … placed many obstacles in our way but we overcame all of them and we are here today.”

After shaking Kim’s hand, Trump flashed a thumbs up signal to the cameras.


The president and Kim met for about 49 minutes before walking over to the second meeting with members of their staff. The two leaders waved at the press as Trump said they were going to have a “very, very good, excellent relationship.”
