'Trump Pump' Handshake Gave President Upper Hand With Kim Jong Un

'Alpha male' handshakes as Trump, Kim meet, but body language shows some nerves

Stephen Colbert had some questions for President Trump after Tuesday's summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, so on Tuesday's Late Show, he stepped in for ABC's George Stephanopoulos.

The president said he and Kim "got along from the beginning" and the North Korean leader realized that he must get rid of his nuclear weapons.

Across a slew of Fox News shows, hosts on Tuesday lauded the president and trotted out a number of close Trump allies as guests to do the same. Pundits have pointed out that the US didn't get much of anything concrete out of their signed agreement, other than a reiteration of Kim's previous statement to work towards the de-nuclearlization of the Korean peninsula. The White House is marking the meeting down as a success after the two leaders signed an agreement to move the relationship forward, in addition to receiving a pledge the regime will denuclearize.

Rolland Garros Final: Nadal vs Thiem
He is the only man to beat the world number one on clay in the last two years - in Madrid this spring and in Rome last year. Thiem was on the couch, watching on TV, in 2005, when Nadal earned his first Grand Slam trophy in Paris at age 19.


He also called for the National Security Council to have a transcript of all interactions with the "brutal, nuclear-armed dictator".

"Trump is a gambler and he's gambling on being able to rein in North Korea like a parent does to naughty child", Leong said. And I know that we will have tremendous success together, and we will solve a big problem, a big dilemma that, until this point, has been unable to be solved.

As the two men entered the room, photographs were taken, with Trump joking about wanting to get a "beautiful picture" in which he looked good.

"Donald Trump was talking in conciliatory terms, nearly submissive, but his body language was clearly saying "I am in charge here", Pease said. "So he sets the meeting, he has this sit-down, he hears what he wants to hear - blah, blah, blah".

"We had it made up", the president said.
