As noted yesterday, the summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is back on. The meeting is scheduled to take place on June 12 in Singapore.
The renegotation of the terms of the summit was the focus of a 74-minute meeting at the White House between the president and North Korean diplomat Kim Yong-choi.
At the meeting’s end, writes The Daily Caller’s Benny Johnson:
[E]very camera in the press corp was rolling as the president and the North Korean diplomatic gaggle departed the White House. North Korean diplomat Kim Yong Chol [sic] paused for a moment to confer with Trump through a translator.
The two men spoke as the diplomatic circles hovered around them. Trump then called over members of the North Korean diplomatic circle who he had not met and greeted them.
It was at this point that something unexpected happened. See if you can pick it up in portion of the following video that begins at around 2:42.
Did you notice that several members of the delegation, and most notably the woman dressed in white, bowed to the president? More importantly did you notice that he didn’t bow back? Instead, he offered to shake hands — as is the American custom of greeting dignitaries from other nations.
You may have forgotten this after eight years of a president who saw fit to prostrate himself not only in front of foreign leaders (who didn’t extend the same courtesy).
Miss him yet?
