While speaking with the photographers at the summit in Singapore, President Trump asked the photographers to make them look “nice and handsome and thin.”
President Trump was speaking to photographers and cameramen from the Singapore government’s TV channel “Host TV” when he made the comments.
“Getting a good picture everybody? So we look nice and handsome and thin? Perfect,” Trump said.
Watch – Make us look nice and handsome and thin
Per The Hill:
Trump and Kim were marking a historic moment as the first time a sitting U.S. president has met with a North Korean leader.
The two met one-on-one for just under 40 minutes before moving to an expanded meeting with other officials and a three-course working lunch.
Trump took a jab at the press earlier in the day, telling Kim, ”The press, they never stop,” as the two sat down ahead of their meeting.
“I’ll tell you when they’re out,” Trump said, referring to press in the room.
This monumental meeting is a huge step for North Korea. Despite the dark past of the Kim Jong Un regime, it appears he may be ready to move forward and put many of their past actions in the past.
