President Donald Trump made history on Sunday as the first sitting
U.S. president to visit North Korea. Trump met with North Korean
dictator Kim Jong Un at the DMZ and briefly crossed the border into
“The relationship that we have developed has meant so much to many people and it was just an honor to be with you. And it was an honor that you asked me to step over that line. And I was proud to step over that line. I thought that you might do that, I wasn’t sure, but I was ready to do it,” Trump said later at a press conference.
Greeted by a beaming Mr. Kim, the president stepped across a low concrete border marker at 3:46 p.m. local time and walked 20 paces to the base of a building on the North Korean side for an unprecedented, camera-friendly demonstration of friendship intended to revitalize stalled talks.
