It's unclear whether the White House chose his company, and why.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his commitment to "complete denuclearisation of Korean Peninsula", in a joint agreement signed with US President Donald Trump Tuesday.

Using dramatic narration, it presented the summit as a historic event.

"We had it made up", the president said.

"They have great beaches", Trump said.

The first-ever meeting between a sitting American president and a North Korean leader was, of course, something to be documented, which it primarily was during the pair's initial handshake. Toward the end of the meeting.

Members of the North Korean dictator's entourage will also be present.

The voiceover framed Kim as a potential "hero of his people" with the chance to achieve "prosperity like he has never seen".

After meeting privately and with aides, Trump and Kim moved into the luncheon at a long flower-bedecked table.

"This is just a new beginning", Trump said while shaking hands with Kim. "So we look nice and handsome and thin and flawless?"

Then they dined on beef short rib confit along with sweet and sour crispy pork. You have South Korea, you have China, and they own the land in the middle.

"President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un conducted a comprehensive, in-depth, and honest exchange of opinions on the issues related to the establishment of new U.S. -DPRK relations and the building of a lasting and robust peace regime on the Korean Peninsula". Kim has been accused of horrific rights abuses against his people.

In the press conference, Trump says that he got Jong-un to watch it on a cassette, er... But he added "our hostages" are back home and testing, research and launches have stopped. I think he loved it. Trump left that summit early and, as he flew to Singapore, tweeted that he was yanking the USA out of the group's traditional closing statement.

But Kim did not respond to press questions on whether he would give up nuclear weapons, Mediaite reported, while President Trump stated he looked forward to lifting sanctions on the isolated nation.

The fact the two leaders have come face-to-face-the first time a sitting U.S. President and a North Korean leader have met-makes this a historic, if somewhat weird, moment. Though CNN reports the almost five-hour talk ended with only a "vague pledge" that North Korea will disarm, many on Twitter were more taken with what the world leaders dined on during their important discussion.
