Watch: Kim Jong-un's reaction to Donald Trump’s joke about their weight is priceless


While the discussions between the two leaders were no doubt serious, people have also been talking about a joke from the President that seemed to fall flat on its face.
After meeting privately and with aides, Trump and Kim moved into lunch at a long flower-bedecked table.

As they entered, Trump attempted to injected some lightheartedness into the day’s extraordinary events, telling photographers capturing the moment: ‘Getting a good picture everybody? So we look nice and handsome and thin? Perfect.’
The camera then panned to Kim who listened to the translation – and his reaction about their weight was utterly priceless.
Whether the casual jibe was lost in translation or Kim just didn’t find it particularly funny, his stone-faced stare at the President was something that many will remember from the summit – as well as the hope for denuclearisation.
The summit saw Trump and Kim share a historic handshake but critics say the love-in between the two was further evidence that Trump was helping legitimise the North Korean leader on the world stage.
Trump responded on Twitter, saying: ‘The fact that I am having a meeting is a major loss for the U.S., say the haters & losers.’


But he added ‘our hostages’ are back home and testing, research and launches have stopped.
The optimistic summit was a remarkable change in dynamics from less than a year ago, when Trump was threatening ‘fire and fury’ against Kim, who in turn labelled the President a ‘mentally deranged US dotard’.
