Trump's video that may have changed things for Kim

"In the annals of international diplomacy, NOTHING, I repeat, nothing is bound to upstage the moment Trump pulled an iPad and showed Kim the trailer of his straight-to-video 1980s action B movie casting Kim and himself as heroes destined to save the world's 7 billion people."

Trump shows Kim Jong-un bizarre four-minute-long video designed as inspirational film trailer
Film offered Kim chance to 'remake history'

12 June, 2018

Donald Trump has revealed he showed Kim Jung-un a four-minute Hollywood-style video when pitching the idea of peace to the North Korean leader.

Just before speaking at a press conference after their meeting in Singapore, the video was played to the media in both Korean and English.

That was a tape that we gave to Chairman Kim and his people, and it captures a lot, captures what could be done," said Mr Trump. "And that’s a great place, has the potential to be an incredible place between South Korea, if you think about it, and China.

"It’s got tremendous potential and I think he understands that and he wants to do what’s right.”

The film was credited to "Destiny Productions", and contained a variety of stock footage of the two countries and both leaders, as if framing them both as characters in a blockbuster.

It offers Kim Jung-un the opportunity to "remake history", ending with a title frame saying: "The future remains to be written".
