Hours earlier as he sat alongside Kim at the signing ceremony, Trump said the two leaders "have developed a special bond" and that after their several hours of talks Tuesday and the signing of the agreement he thinks the USA relationship with North Korea "will be very different than in the past".
The camera then panned to Kim who listened to the translation - and his reaction about their weight was utterly priceless. U.S. Forces Korea said in a statement Tuesday it was unaware of any policy change.
It had been made in America, by or on the orders of his White House, for the benefit of Kim.
"I think he loved it", Trump said during his post-meeting news conference.

Trump also may have endangered US allies in the region, since any attempt by USA officials to correct the course he's set could provide North Korea with a convenient excuse to withdraw from the negotiation process ― and blame the US for the diplomatic collapse.

Media captionTrump Kim summit: Win-win, or a Kim win? "The Korean War never ended, it was a cease-fire and now we have a chance to put that conflict to bed". But in the hours before the summit, the White House unexpectedly announced Trump would depart earlier than expected.
"Ending "war games" does not preclude normal peacetime training and is a decision easily reversed should Kim falter from this declaration of intent to pursue disarmament", he told The Times.
Trump responded that he was embracing diplomacy with Kim in hopes of saving as many as 30 million lives.
On Tuesday, Trump appeared to be in safe hands with Lee by his side during his meeting with Kim. "If diplomacy doesn't move in the right direction, sanctions will increase".
As the president explained it, the video was an elevator pitch - the sort of glitzy production that Trump might have once used to persuade an investor to finance a hotel and that he now hopes will persuade the leader of one of the most repressive regimes in the world to end almost 70 years of global isolation and militant hostility to the United States.
