What Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump's body language reveals

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.

Kim's first major interaction with the worldwide community also betrayed a sense of awe and wonder as he faced the rapid fire shutters of photographers in the opulence of the Singapore luxury hotel where the meeting took place.

Trump also admitted, as shown in video from C-SPAN, that he could be wrong about North Korea.

"Donald Trump was talking in conciliatory terms, nearly submissive, but his body language was clearly saying "I am in charge here", Pease said.

Meanwhile, Jimmy Kimmel compared the meeting to "when Scooby-Doo met the Harlem Globetrotters". He mainly looked down, listening, as Trump spoke, but did look up at several times during the conversation.

"This summit was a crucial and necessary step to build upon the positive developments achieved in inter-Korean relations and on the peninsula so far", the EU's diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini said in a statement.

"So he sets the meeting; he has the sit-down. As soon as the meeting's over, he runs out, calls a press conference, declares victory, everyone goes home, Kim Jong Un does nothing differently at all, and we go back to our lives, too".

"In fact", he added, "the only thing we know they signed was a declaration of friendship". "A lot of pundits think it was a mistake to meet with an unstable dictator, but Kim Jong Un said, 'You know what?" "For real", Kimmel told his giggling crowd. "Kim Jong Un got respect on the world stage, an end to military exercises between the United States and South Korea, and no timeline to give up nuclear weapons or human rights abuses".

"What are you talking about?" "You're talking about him like he started Apple in his garage".
