Kim could be heard saying “nice to meet you Mr. President” before the two men turned on the red carpet to pose for photos in front of a line of U.S. and North Korean flags.
After Trump sat down next to Kim for their meeting inside the swanky Capella Hotel, the president predicted he would have a “terrific relationship” with the North Korean strongman.
“I feel really great,” Trump said. “We’re going to have a great discussion and, I think, tremendous success.”
Kim said through a translator that “we overcame our obstacles” to have the talks.
The two men were scheduled to speak one-on-one with only translators present before heading into broader meetings with their advisers.
