It was not clear from the outset whether the leaders would get on well when they met, with Trump issuing a stark warning to Kim ahead of the meeting that this was a one-time shot for North Korea to engage in talks.

"Of those alive today, only a small number will leave a lasting impact, and only the very few will make decisions or take actions that renew their homeland and change the course of history".


Just before Trump addressed reporters in Singapore after his historic meeting with Kim, journalists were shown a video, first in Korean, then in English.

And on condition of anonymity, a senior US government official told ABC News on Tuesday that the video is a USA government production.
