Trump Showed Kim Jong Un A Fake Movie Trailer Starring The Two Of Them As Heroes

In a world...where denuclearization is discussed through dramatic movie trailers.

Posted on June 12, 2018, at 10:27 a.m. ET

In case you somehow missed it, President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed an agreement on Tuesday to establish new relations between the US and North Korea and bring "peace and prosperity" during their historic summit in Singapore.

Naturally, when two world leaders with the... err... personalities of Trump and Kim meet face-to-face, some weird stuff is bound to happen.

But possibly the weirdest thing to happen was Trump showing Kim a fake movie trailer on an iPad that starred the two of them as heroes destined to bring about world peace.

After the meeting, Trump told reporters that he had the trailer made to show Kim and eight members of the North Korean delegation during their meeting. The video was also shown to the media before Trump's press conference.

President Trump played quite a dramatic video before his press conference 👀

“We had it made up," Trump said. "I showed it to him today, actually during the meeting, toward the end of the meeting and I think he loved it."

Trump said that the other members of the delegation were "fascinated by it" and that it could "very well be the future."

"I showed it because I really want him to do something,” the president said.

The four-minute trailer about "two men, two leaders, one destiny" followed the winning formula of every hit movie trailer ever made in Hollywood.

Not sure what Kim thought of the trailer, but considering he said that people will think of his meeting with Trump as "a scene from a science fiction movie," he probably dug it.
