Donald Trump on Tuesday played a Hollywood-style video to Kim Jong-un, which depicted the North Korean leader and the U.S. president as its leading men, showing the prospect of peace.

He gestured for an aide to open the door to the vehicle - many of whose features are highly classified - and even appeared to be inviting the North Korean despot in for a look around. "An iPad", Trump said.

"We´ll meet again", Trump said after a signing ceremony, standing with Kim on the verandah where they first met.

"I think it is a prelude for peace as we sit down together here by boldly overcoming mistakes that drag us down tediously".

Trump said his team had brought the video to Singapore on 'on a cassette and an iPad.' It's unclear whether the White House believed it would have to provide an old-technology way for Kim to view it once he was home in Pyongyang.

In Seoul, South Korean President Moon Jae-in watched live on television, telling his ministers, he "could hardly sleep last night".

The incident brought back memories of the 2016 Trooping the Colour when William, 36, was scolded by Queen Elizabeth to stand up. Prince George has previously been spotted wearing another style from the Hampton Canvas range at Trotters called the Nantucket.

Kim and Trump come face-to-face for the first time.

"We had it made up", the president said. Trump left that summit early and, as he flew to Singapore, tweeted that he was yanking the US out of the group's traditional closing statement.

Such a meeting was unthinkable even six months ago when the two leaders found themselves in the middle of a verbal confrontation over North Korea's nuclear programme.

The North Korea leader added that the "world would see a major change".

He would not say whether that included the possibility of withdrawing US troops from the Korean Peninsula, but said the USA was "prepared to take what will be security assurances that are different, unique, than America's been willing to provide previously". During a press conference, the former real estate tycoon also took a moment to, um, praise North Korea's "great beaches", which appear to have been one of his main takeaways after observing the country's military exercises.
