SINGAPORE — A movie-trailer style video that President Donald Trump shared with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday is making headlines for adding a dramatic flair to the countries' historic summit in Singapore.
A STORY OF OPPORTUNITY FOR NORTH KOREA
This is the video President Trump shared with Chairman Kim at the historical Singapore Summit....Posted by The White House on Tuesday, June 12, 2018
"Two men, two leaders, one destiny. A story about a special moment in time when a man is presented with one chance which may never be repeated. What will he choose – to show vision and leadership or not?" a narrator says in the video, which includes clips of smiling people, new technology, skyscrapers and natural resources before transitioning, ominously, to explosions.
"There can only be two results: one of moving back or one of moving forward," the voice continues. "A new world can begin today – one of friendship, respect and goodwill. Be part of that world, where the doors of opportunity are ready to be opened – investment from around the world, where you can have medical breakthroughs, an abundance of resources, innovative technology and new discoveries."
Later, the narrator appeals to Kim: "Will this leader choose to advance his country and be part of a new world? Be the hero of his people? Will he shake the hand of peace and enjoy prosperity like he has never seen? A great life or more isolation? Which path will be chosen?"
Trump also showed the video to reporters at a news conference Tuesday.
"I think he loved it," Trump said of Kim and his entourage, adding that they seemed "fascinated by it."
"I showed it because I really want him to do something," Trump said, according to The Associated Press.
