Inside the Trump production in Singapore

Before the statesmen was a “very important” and “pretty canada goose outlet trillium parka black comprehensive” document, in the words of Trump, who etched his jagged signature onto it with a thick black Sharpie.Kim was just as grandiose, calling the giant proclamation “historic” canada goose parka outlet uk as he left his mark, but only after a white gloved North Korean official had personally inspected canada goose outlet online reviews and swabbed the pen that had been set for him. Kim’s sister then replaced the pen, which bore Trump’s signature, with one of her own, attentive canada goose outlet in uk to the security and autonomy of the supreme leader.What exactly the two men signed with a flourish A peace treaty? canada goose outlet boston An agreement for North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons? A vague claim of momentum between the two countries? remained canada goose outlet uk a mystery for more than two hours, until Trump revealed it at his grand finale news conference.To learn the outcome of the landmark Singapore summit, the world had to stay tuned in. This, after all, was a Donald J. Trump production.The nearly nine hours the president spent summiting at the flag adorned Capella hotel here Tuesday overflowed with Trumpian hallmarks, from his choreographed first handshake with Kim on an endless red carpet to the propaganda style video he played at the start of his victory lap back and forth with the press.President Trump reacts at the end of a news conference after canada goose factory outlet his summit with Kim Jong Un in Singapore on Tuesday. (Jonathan Ernst/Reuters)['A great honor': In a bid for history, Trump flatters N. Korea's totalitarian leader]A former television reality canada goose outlet new york city show producer, Trump has long had a thirst for the dramatic and an eye for the cinematic. canada goose womens outlet As he stepped along a grand colonnade to greet Trump for the first time, a dozen alternating American and North Korean flags neatly arrayed behind them, Kim remarked through an interpreter that many canada goose outlet online store people might say the scene was fantastical like “a science fiction movie.”As orchestrated as the day was, however, it included plenty of Canada Goose Outlet unscripted moments and lighthearted banter, as well. When the two gathered in a dining room for lunch, Trump motioned to the nearby cameramen.”Getting a good picture, everybody?” the president asked. “So we look nice and handsome and thin? Perfect.”The rotund Kim did not chime in.They were served an eclectic, multi course meal with Asian and Western dishes Korean stuffed cucumber, beef short ribs, pork fried rice, braised cod and, a favorite of the president’s, Hagen Dazs vanilla ice canada goose outlet houston cream.As the two leaders took a short walk around the property to work off the meal, Trump showed off his armored stretch Cadillac to Kim. A canada goose outlet las vegas Secret Service agent held open a door so Kim could peer inside the “Beast,” as the presidential limousine is known, but the curious North Korean dictator did not climb inside.Trump’s comments throughout the day were short on details, demonstrating a lack of command over the technicalities of nuclear arms negotiations, but heavy on superlatives. As he told it, the summit was “very historic.” Kim was “very talented,” “very smart” and a “very good negotiator.” The agreement they reached was “very, very comprehensive.” The North Korean people were “very gifted.” And their country’s future is “very, very bright.”As he often does, Trump tried to win his guest’s affections. He softened concerns about Kim’s record of human rights atrocities by saying “it’s a rough situation over there” but adding, “It’s rough in a lot of canada goose outlet online store review places, by the way.”Trump also spoke euphemistically about Kim’s popularity in North Korea, a country where citizens who try to escape are often sentenced to labor camps or executed. “His country does love him. His people, you see the fervor. They have a great fervor,” Trump said of Kim in an interview with ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos.Trump described his half day of meetings with Kim as a singular moment in history and said his approach to North Korea first with fiery rhetoric and brinkmanship and now with a gentle touch has saved the lives of tens of millions of people because it staved off a nuclear catastrophe in Seoul, the South Korean capital, which is home to about 25million people 35 miles from the demilitarized zone with the North.”This is really an honor for me to be doing this, because I think, you know, potentially, you could have lost, you know, 30, 40, 50million people,” Trump said at the news conference.Trump said he tried to help Kim imagine his country as wealthy and modern, with “great condos” and “the best hotels” on its waterfront if only North Korea opened itself to the world.”They have great beaches,” Trump told reporters. “You see that whenever they’re exploding their cannons into the ocean, right? I said: ‘Boy, look at that place. Wouldn’t that make a great condo?’ And I explained it. I said, ‘Instead of doing that, you could have the best hotels in the world right there.’ Think of it from a real estate perspective.”To that end, canada goose outlet store montreal Trump commissioned a film portraying North Korea as some sort of paradise, with gleaming sky rises, time lapsed sunrises, high speed trains, majestic horses running through water and children merrily skipping through Kim Il Sung Square in Pyongyang. It included a montage of images of Kim Jong Un and Trump waving their hands and flashing thumbs up, as if running mates in a campaign.The film was reminiscent of Pyongyang’s propaganda videos, only it was made in the United States under Trump’s direction. It included a credit to Destiny Pictures.Trump said he had it made to show Kim what his country’s future could look like if canada goose vest outlet it abandoned its nuclear canada goose jacket outlet weapons and normalized relations with the West. Trump said he played the film on an iPad for Kim during one of their meetings and, Trump said, “I think he loved it.” So the president directed aides to play it on giant screens in the auditorium at the start of his news conference, first a version in Korean and then one in English.[Reporters thought this video was North Korea propaganda. It came from the White House.]Tuesday’s capstone was Trump’s news conference, a freewheeling affair that lasted 66 minutes. The president was confident and chummy with reporters, even those canada goose outlet woodbury he often attacks. He called on CNN’s Jim Acosta, a favorite foil, and said with a smirk: “Go ahead. Be nice. Be canada goose outlet store quebec respectful.”Trump did not utter the words “fake news.” A few reporters from conservative outlets, including Jon Decker of Fox News Radio and Emerald Robinson of One America canada goose outlet 2015 News Network, wished the president “congratulations” before asking their questions.Trump clearly enjoyed bantering with the press, though his answers lacked some of the substantive detail reporters were seeking. The president’s aides seemed to enjoy it less. About midway through, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly, who had been jostling in their seats in the front canada goose outlet london uk row, could be seen gesturing at White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders as if to enlist her in cutting off the news conference.
