'Trump Pump' Handshake Gave President Upper Hand With Kim Jong Un

'Alpha male' handshakes as Trump, Kim meet, but body language shows some nerves

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".

U.S. President Donald Trump sits next to North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un before their bilateral meeting at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore June 12, 2018.

But in Korean culture, it is polite not to make full eye contact with someone who is older, and Trump is twice Kim's age, the body language expert explained.

Kimmel noted that Trump told the press he had formed a "special bond" with Kim after meeting with the North Korean leader for only 38 minutes. Whether he did something big or not, he was not leaving the summit without pretending he made a deal. "That's not what you have to do", Trump said.

It also showed Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano stating that Trump looked "more presidential this morning than I have ever seen him look" and host Laura Ingraham saying on her show that "it is a great time to be an American".

A photograph showing Trump sitting with his arms folded as German Chancellor Angela Merkel speaks was seen as defining the acrimonious nature of those talks.

Castaldo flat out says, "It's not something I would have done or wanted to have been a part of".

"Featuring President Donald Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un in a meeting to remake history", the trailer's narrator intones. Writing for Forbes, Michael Shellenberger saw value in the video, writing, "As cheesy as the video is, it's precisely the vision of a high-energy planet that poor nations generally, and North Korea particularly, need right now".
