Twitter’s emoji for Trump’s North Korea nuclear summit is very weird

Twitter’s emoji for Trump’s North Korea nuclear summit is very weird

Both Trump and Kim expressed gratitude toward each other for the meetings, and Trump said he would "absolutely" invite Kim to visit the White House.

"We have a very interesting meeting in particular tomorrow, and I think things can work out very nicely", Trump said as he began the working lunch.

They discussed Singapore-North Korea relations and developments on the Korean peninsula amidst Kim thanking the Singaporean premier for hosting the summit.

As U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un meet on Singapore's Sentosa Island on Tuesday, Trump's Twitter timeline shows an interesting history between the two leaders - one that's marred by insults and threats, with the odd compliment in between.

Trump spoke only briefly in public on Monday, forecasting a "nice" outcome.

It marked the first time in history that a North Korean leader was meeting with a sitting USA president.

"He said Singapore is clean and lovely and every building is stylish as he heard of in the past, adding he is going to learn a lot from the good knowledge and experience of Singapore in various fields in the future", KCNA reported.

Donald Trump then guided Kim Jong-un to the library where the one-on-one meeting was to take place.

"It was not an easy journey", Kim said, speaking through a translator.

Mr Trump said he felt "really great" about the meeting.

Drama surrounding the event heightened in the hours before the leaders greeted each other, as the two sides shifted their schedules.

Kim also expressed optimism, saying through a translator that he and Mr. Trump had an "historic meeting and chose to leave the past behind".

He said this was again a "subtle gesture" from Trump to gain sympathy, with gentle touches to the North Korean's shoulder and back.

"It's gonna be a great discussion and I think tremendous success", Trump said.

Trump made the comments as he and Kim walked together along balcony as they headed to a larger meeting with aides.

Kim, who was sitting alongside Trump, said through a translator, "We had a historic meeting and chose to leave the past behind and we are about to sign a historic document".

Kim has rejected calls to unilaterally give up his weapons in return for economic aid, and instead has proposed a step-by-step denuclearization process.

Sanctions will remain until North Korea completely and verifiably eliminates its weapons of mass destruction programs, he added.

The talks - unimaginable just a few months ago - will focus on North Korea's controversial nuclear programme.

But in return, Washington would offer "different and unique" guarantees "to provide them sufficient certainty that they can be comfortable that denuclearisation is not something that ends badly for them".
