Mix of Western, Asian dishes served at Trump-Kim summit during lunch

According to a menu card published from the White House, Kim and Trump had a plethora of western, Korean, Chinese and Malay dishes to choose from at the swanky Capella hotel in Singapore.

"It wasn't a straight-out handshake", said Allan Pease, an Australian body language expert and author of several books on the topic, including "The Definitive Guide to Body Language".

Garrett Marquis, an NSC spokesman said in a statement: "The video was created by the National Security Council to help the president demonstrate the benefits of complete denuclearization, and a vision of a peaceful and prosperous Korean peninsula".

Trump also recognized on Tuesday during a press conference that he could potentially be wrong about trusting Kim. Toward the end of the meeting. "That's not what you have to do", Trump said. "They also seem to think President Trump might be able to get a good deal, even though no one has a clue as to what that deal might entail".

"If you didn't know who these people were, you'd say the big guy was the father and the little guy is the son".

Trump himself addressed the video Tuesday and played it for reporters, noting it was brought to Singapore on an iPad.

President Trump speaks out about the summit to Bret Baier. "To convey what they wanted to see or what's in store for the future". "The past has placed many obstacles in our way but we overcame all of them and we are here today". "It was never on the table", Trump said. Though CNN reports the almost five-hour talk ended with only a "vague pledge" that North Korea will disarm, many on Twitter were more taken with what the world leaders dined on during their important discussion. This contrasted with Kim, who had comparatively less to lose, having already scored a major win through Trump's agreement to meet him.

"Kim looked a bit like a kid in a theme park: not intimidating, excited and a bit nervous", Pease added.
