From The Hill:
In parts of the lengthy, 42-minute long video from North Korea’s KCTV news channel, Kim can be seen shaking Trump’s hand before the president turns to shake the hand of a North Korean officer standing next to Kim. The officer, confused, salutes Trump instead, prompting the president to salute back.
U.S. presidents generally salute U.S. service members, but do not salute members of other nation’s militaries.
OFFICIAL GOP REACTION
From The New Yorker:
“It’s like looking in a mirror—but without Mike Pence lurking behind me.”
Still, in six months, if Trump finds out he was wrong about Kim, the president conceded he would never say so.
“I don’t know that I’ll ever admit that,” he said. “I’ll find some kind of excuse.”
Of course he will.
The new Trump/Kim summit challenge coin.

Kim Jong Un calling Trump a means he’s used an English dictionary at least one more time than Trump.
