Make Korea Great Again: Kim first North Korean leader to visit South in peace summit

Without President Trump in office I don't believe Kim crossing the demilitarized zone into South Korea would have happened.

This is huge.

From the Daily Mail:
Kim Jong-un has become the first North Korean leader to step into the South for 65 years as he met with President Moon Jae-in for a historic peace summit on Friday.

The dictator crossed the 38th parallel and warmly shook hands with his sworn enemy before both men walked side-by-side to a welcome ceremony attended by flamboyantly-dressed South Korean soldiers.

Moving on to the truce village of Panmunjom, Kim signed the guest book at the Peace House, which will be the venue for talks focusing on whether the North can be persuaded to give up its nuclear bombs.

Kim, donning his trademark Mao suit, arrived by car before entering South Korea to meet President Moon 9.30am local time (8.30pm EST/12.30am GMT). Talks are expected to start an hour later.
