It finally happened, the first US sitting President met with the leader of North Korea for the first time ever, a truly historic event.
Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un first met without smiles, but after the first photo-op when they walked back to the sit-down photo opportunity they both smiled and exchanged small talk.
Here's the moment

Kim’s first words to flashing cameras from the translator was “it was hard to get here.”
Then Kim seemed to be overwhelmed by the cameras and Trump ushered the cameras out with his famous “thank you!” quotes to the mainstream media.
The two then walked to a private room with only their translators, and that’s where we sit now.
