President Trump met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore, a historic encounter that Trump hopes will lead to a lasting peace agreement and the dismantling of North Korea’s nuclear program.

The first-ever meeting between a U.S. president and a North Korean leader began just after 9 a.m. Tuesday local time with a handshake and an exchange of pleasantries, producing images that were carried live on television across the United States and beyond.

The article goes on to state the following:

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.
