Meeting with staged ceremony on a Singapore island, Trump and Kim came together for a summit that seemed just unthinkable months ago, clasping hands in front of a row of alternating US and North Korean flags, holding a one-on-one meeting, additional talks with advisers and a working lunch. Pictures soon started flooding social media and here are some hilarious outcomes in the form of memes.

"Chairman Kim and I just signed a joint statement in which he reaffirmed his unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula", Trump said.

Trump said he "absolutely" would be willing to invite Kim - whose regime has been criticised for widespread human rights abuses - to the White House.

Professor John Hajek from the University of Melbourne's School of Languages and Linguistics said the US President was "doing all the talking" and had the "upper hand" when the two met for their historic meeting.

The North Korean and American delegations sat down for a working lunch after a bilateral meeting between officials of both countries at the Capella hotel on Sentosa.

US President Donald Trump said Tuesday there had been a "lot of progress" in his historic talks with North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un, and the pair were expected to sign a document together.

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.

"Two men, two leaders, one destiny".

In Seoul, South Korean President Moon Jae-in watched live on television, telling his ministers, he "could hardly sleep last night".

The trailer portrays 71-year-old Trump and 34-year-old Kim as the two leading characters of the film - but the outcome is yet unknown.

He later said that the video showed a vision of "the highest level of future development", and that North Korea could also opt for "a much smaller version of this".

Accompanying Trump were White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, National Security Advisor John Bolton, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. I thought it was good, I thought it was interesting enough to show, one in English and one in Korean.
