President Trump Becomes First U.S. President To Visit North Korea

Over the weekend, President Trump became the first U.S. President to enter North Korea. 

"President Trump has just walked across the demarcation line. That made him the first U.S. President to visit our country." said Chairman Kim Jong Un. 

"I believe just looking at this action, this is an expression of his willingness to eliminate all the unfortunate past and open a new future." he added

President Trump said, "I just want to say that this is my honor.  I didn’t really expect it.  We were in Japan for the G20.  We came over and I said, “Hey, I’m over here.  I want to call up Chairman Kim.”  And we got to meet.  And stepping across that line was a great honor.  A lot of progress has been made.  A lot of friendships have been made.  And this has been in particular a great friendship.  So I just want to thank you.  That was very quick notice, and I want to thank you.

So we’re going to go inside.  We’re going to talk for a little while about different things.  And a lot of really positive things are happening, and I’m glad you could be here to see it.  But tremendous positivity.  Really great things are happening and — in a lot of places.  But we met and we liked each other from day one, and that was very important."
