NORTH KOREANS at Home Finally Told About Trump-Kim Historic Summit (VIDEO)

For decades, Ms Ri has been entrusted with announcing great moments in North Korean history. Against the backdrop of Mount Paektu, a dormant volcano symbolising Korean nationhood, she said Kim had met Lee Hsien Loong, Singapore’s prime minister, and would hold talks with President Donald Trump.
