White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, shared the photo when President Trump said goodbye to Chairman Kim at close of Hanoi summit.
In the photo, Kim Jong-un shook hands with President Trump and had a big smile, when they finished the negotiation.
At the press conference in Hanoi, there was one question for President Trump: “What was the atmosphere like when you walked away from the negotiation table?”
And Trump answered: “I think it was very good, very friendly. This wasn’t a walk away like you get up and walk out. No, this was very friendly. We shook hands.”
“I want to keep the relationship, we’ll see what will happen over the next period of time. Chairman Kim told me last night that he will not be doing any nuclear tests and I trust him,” Trump said.

The president also asserted at the summit press conference: “We literally just we spent pretty much all day with Kim Jong-un, who is — he’s quite a guy and quite a character. And I think our relationship is very strong.”
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo added: “I’m very optimistic that the progress that we made both in the run-up to this summit as well as the progress that the two leaders made over these past two days put us in a position to get a really good outcome.”
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said nuclear negotiations with North Korea will resume quickly. He told reporters aboard his plane Thursday that his team will get back to work “tomorrow”.
