​Donald Trump And Kim Jong Un Share Historic Handshake

President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un have made history after becoming the first sitting US and North Korean leaders to meet.

After months of planning, they got together and shook hands at a swanky hotel in Singapore's Sentosa island before heading for some talks.


It's a massive moment in history and is hoped it will ease tensions about a nuclear fight between the US and North Korea.


Trump and Kim then went on to sit next to each before moving on to a behind-closed-doors one-on-one where we're all hoping they'll agree not to blow each other up over a cup of tea.

US President Trump reckons he will have a 'terrific relationship' with Kim.

Former businessman Trump said: "I feel really great. We're going to have a great discussion and will be tremendously successful."

Trump has his critics around the world but the fact he has become the first US President to secure a meeting with a North Korean leader will go down in history.


North Korea has been an isolated nation since it first divided from South Korea after the end of World War II in 1945.

The two Korean states then went to war in the 1950s and never actually signed a peace treaty, making that the longest ceasefire in history. The US had sided with South Korea in the conflict.

However, now more than ever, it looks like there is a chance for the high tensions to go away and they could sign an agreement together.


"It was not easy to get here," Mr Kim said. "There were obstacles but we overcame them to be here." Trump said: "That's true."

Trump said after emerging from hours of talks with Kim that "we're going right now for a signing." Asked what he'd be signing, Trump said: "We're going to be announcing that in a couple of minutes."

Come on, guys, let's settle our differences.
