President Trump crosses demilitarized zone into North Korea, meets with Kim Jong Un

(CBS/WBNG) — President Trump became the first sitting president of the United States to cross the demilitarized zone into North Korea and meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Sunday.

CBS reports that President Trump said he and Kim had agreed to restart negotiations to help broker a deal that will denuclearize the Korean peninsula during their 45-minute meeting.

This has been a foreign policy deal many U.S. presidents sought after.

President Trump has also invited the North Korean leader to the White House.

The president announced that the meeting was a “big moment” for the two countries.

Earlier, in a conference with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, the president said he was unsure if there would be a third summit with Kim following the unsuccessful one earlier in 2019 in Vietnam.
