Here's the moment President Donald Trump met Kim Jong Un for the first time
President Donald Trump has met Kim Jong Un, the first time any North Korean leader has met a sitting US president.
The two shook hands shortly after 9 a.m. (local time) on Sentosa Island in Singapore, where they will shortly begin a one-on-one meeting, accompanied only by translators. The 45 minute meeting will be followed by an expanded bilateral meeting with members of the Trump administration and then a working lunch.
Image-sensitive Trump has played down concerns the summit will achieve little."It's going to be much more than a photo op," Trump said at the White House last week.But for Kim, even if today doesn't provide an easing of sanctions, this very photo is enough reason for Kim to attend today's summit as North Korea has wanted a meeting with a US president for decades.
