President Donald Trump met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un on Sunday morning after putting out the invitation to do so on social media yesterday.
After some very important meetings, including my meeting with President Xi of China, I will be leaving Japan for South Korea (with President Moon). While there, if Chairman Kim of North Korea sees this, I would meet him at the Border/DMZ just to shake his hand and say Hello(?)!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 28, 2019
The two leaders met in the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea when Kim invited President Trump to walk into North Korea. He accepted the invitation and became the first sitting U.S. president to do so.

Just before the historic meeting, newly minted White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham literally pushed back on North Korean security guards, who were blocking reporters, in order get American press access to the historic moment.
Grisham was seen on camera pushing back North Koreans who were blocking US press. Shouting "Go! Go!" as she created a path for press to join the Trump-Kim meeting. https://t.co/smFer0JwGw— Allie Malloy (@AlliemalCNN) June 30, 2019
