This comment made those gathered around laugh out loud.
Donald Trump was giving a farewell speech before boarding Air Force One back to the USA.
In his short visit to South Korea Trump became the first sitting US President to cross the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) from the South Korean side and into the North Korean Side.
He also met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the DMZ. This meeting saw the two leaders come face to face for the first time after the talks between the two in Vietnam this February broke down.
The two leaders spoke to the media where Prez Trump thanked Kim for 'making them both look good' by accepting his twitter invitation to meet at the DMZ.
After some very important meetings, including my meeting with President Xi of China, I will be leaving Japan for South Korea (with President Moon). While there, if Chairman Kim of North Korea sees this, I would meet him at the Border/DMZ just to shake his hand and say Hello(?)!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 28, 2019
