President Donald Trump made history by becoming the first sitting U.S. President to walk across the border into North Korea. And it was all set up in a tweet.

In a tweet, Trump announced he would meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the DMZ, the demilitarized zone or border that separates North Korea from South Korea.

Hours later, on Sunday, June 30, Trump met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un inside the DMZ and shook hands before Trump stepped across the border from Panmunjom, South Korea into North Korea.

"Good to see you again. I never expected to meet you at this place," a translator quoted Kim, as the two men shook hands. Then Kim invited Trump to step across the border, telling him, "You are the first U.S. president to cross the border."

Photographers jockeyed for position at the Demarcation Line to record history when Trump walked into North Korea early Sunday morning. The epic moment briefly united Democrats and Republicans back in the U.S.

Many U.S. lawmakers said the meeting between the two world leaders was a positive move toward world peace. They hoped the meeting would restart stalled nuclear disarmament talks.

Afterwards, Trump and Kim turned and walked back across the border to the South Korean side where they spoke with South Korean leader Moon Jae-in. Then Trump and Kim met for an hour behind closed doors.

The White House released a transcript of the meeting in which Trump and Kim said they are committed to the "complete denuclearization" of the Korean peninsula.

Trump's advisor Ivanka Trump and her husband, U.S. Senior Advisor Jared Kushner were there to witness history.

Initially, members of the White House press pool were locked out of the meeting by Kim's aggressive security detail. There are reports that new White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham was injured trying to make room for members of the press to capture the historic meeting.

Grisham was bruised when an "all-out brawl" erupted between Kim's security and members of the press (watch videos below). She bravely shoved aside two of the guards, and shouted "Go! Go!" to the photographers who scrambled past her.

CNN's Jim Acosta tweeted that Grisham suffered "bruises" in the scuffle.

Melania Trump's former spokeswoman was promoted to the job after former press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders left to become a stay-at-home mom to her three children.

Once referred to as the "world's most dangerous border," the DMZ was established as a neutral zone between North Korea and South Korea at the end of World War II. The Military Demarcation Line (MDL) is a stone border about 6 inches high and 12 inches across. The actual border (chain link fences topped with razor wire) stretches from sea-to-sea and is heavily patrolled by forces on both sides.

    They were there for a free trip, as usual. ?

  • R Smith

    History for sure! However, we shouldn't think NK are going to get rid of their nuclear weapons! Why would they?

  • Vivlyn

    They should have kept him there

  • Junkanoo

    An American president shouldnt be visiting countries where the citizens aren't allowed to live freely forced to worship a murderous psychopath . This is historic for all the wrong reasons America has a history of overthrtowing democratically elected leaders and getting in bed with dictators. Ivanka and Jared are no more qualified for their positions than the man in the moon world leaders wont take either of them very seriously their imposters from a crime family.

    But saddam was executed and his country destroyed for being, not half as cruel as this retard Kim Jon Un. Hopefully Trump will be the first American president to be emprisoned too!

  • Alextra Ballard

    Once he stepped across the border intew North Korea,I wish that would have detained his ass and placed him in a prison camp. There was no political reason for this meeting with KJU. Nothing gained. For Trump it was all about the media and his image.

  • Tinytoon

    Please say this loudly for the Trump @ss kissers in the back. Social Media opportunity.

  • Carrington

    I've been inside that building on the DMZ... it's weird as f*ck. You walk into this room and there is this intense energy because there's a line down the center of the room. On one side of the room there are north Korean soldiers staring straight ahead the entire time glaring, intensely, at the other side of this very small room where south Korean soldiers are staring, back at them, backs against the wall - armed with weapons. If you put your foot across the line... you're in North Korea. I'm kewl over here in the south, cuh. What time we leavin?

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    In case he don't get RE-ELECTED he plots to become friends and plot and then say to himself "I'll just move me , my money and family out of the U. S. And then you can fire the nuclear.!

  • Phillybruh

    He's going to lift sanctions and allow him to keep his nukes and his believers are going act like he saved the world. This was all a photo-op to do something Obama didn't do. He still in love with Obama.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yeah, it just seems like he's gonna be doing a lot of stuff like this for image and publicity to help his reelection bid. Super lame.

    Biden's still gonna beat him though, so he might as well enjoy this last 18 months before he gets booted out of office.

  • KcoolMuziq

    "Melania Trump's former spokeswoman was promoted to the job after former press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders left to become a stay-at-home mom to her three children."

    But Melania Trump didn't become the first first lady of a sitting U.S. President to walk across the border into North Korea with him. She wasn't even there.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    He's gonna be mad when he loses in 2020, since Obama will have served 2 terms and he'll be gone after 1. This dude definitely seems obsessed with Obama, and has been for years. Disgusting.

  • Carrington

    All this did was elevate Kim's standing in the world. The President of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA begging, on the Twitters, to meet HIM. If you look at Kim, he wanted to be anywhere but there. He just needed that photo op and that photo op needed him to not be smiling so that he looks, and is taken, very seriously around the world. Trump, on the other hand...

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Both of them of course, have ZERO experience or qualifications to be a Presidential Senior Advisor. Just ridiculous.

  • Carrington

    Don't be so sure about Biden... that's what they thought about Hillary. The more we tell folk it's in the bag, the less they feel pressured to vote. The racist vote is a much broader base than one tends to recognize.

  • iWasteTime
  • KLove

    LOL so?

  • Ghetto Real Name
  • Seldomseen

    I agree with everything but the part about him losing. I am not so sure about that

  • OvertheMississippi

    Should have stayed over there!

  • OvertheMississippi

    Yeah, Bro. Biden is shooting himself in the foot every week!!

  • deadellamore
  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    I dont think he is going to lose either?

  • Phillybruh

    Me either, but to ensure he wins he needed to expand his base and I'm not so sure he did that either. The best thing that ever happened Bush was 9/11 or he would have been one term. He keeps trying to create these moments but stepping on his own toes. He should have shut the lights out in Russia once he took office and built on Obamacare hell Iran was willing to build on that nuclear deal but because he gets a hard one for Obama and it isn't returned everything must go. He could very well win, but he's not ready for any of these Candidates in the Top five of the campaign. Maybe Bernie.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I hear you. I still think Biden will take the nomination, but if not I think Kamala Harris will beat Trump too. In a head to head debate I think Harris will make Trump look foolish.
    The racist vote is a concern though for sure. That's one reason you cant trust the polls, since a lot of the racists/Trump supporters don't always tell these pollsters their true feelings.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. Bernie I'm not so sure about. He's a bit too far left for most Americans right now. But I think any combination of Biden/Harris/Buttigieg will probably beat Trump.

  • Phillybruh

    I have to throw Warren in that mix but I agree with you.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Mr. Poppington looks like he is done with life in that gif lmaooo.

    This is what happens when a so-called president has never served in the Armed Forces...I was stationed 2x in Korea...Camp Casey and Camp Humphrey...This guy do not understand what soliders go through over there just to keep Americans safe. This is a game for him to out do all other Presidents and definitely Mr Obama. Kim Jung Un cares nothing about Trump or his policies and will continue to do what he chooses.

  • Carrington

    But, you have to take into account the fact that he lost every single debate the last time - and won. His base doesn't care about his limited vocabulary, is inability to convey a message without describing it as, "... it's going to be theeeee most fantastic thinnnnng. In the history of this country. The best thing you've ever seen." They don't care that he's dumb ASF... all they care about his the messaging BEHIND the messaging. The underlying tones of racism. What, "great again" means to a people wishing to go back to a time when they could call you a n*gger without recompense. The fact that you could be accused of raping women and nothing happens to you speaks to a certain type of man. The type of speech that says, "I'm sick of these Africans coming over here... and I'm building a wall to keep out the Mexicans!" speaks directly to a certain kind of voter. Believe it, or not, there are plenty of Trump voters who keep that to themselves.

  • Heat2Hot

    I wonder if this photo of Trump in the DMZ will push Otto Warmbier's parents over the edge. Every major media outlet is probably camped outside of their house. They voted for Trump and once again he's meeting with the dictator who sent their son back home in a vegetative state.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    We don't know if Trump has expanded his base because there are a lot of Trump supporters who are still lying to pollsters.
    I don't think he will have any surprise new voters like he did in 2016 but I think the ones who voted for him in 2016 will definitely support him in 2020 so Democrats just have to get out their base and hope for the best.

    The guy who is obsessed with making America great is an enemy of America? Got it.
    You have Trump Derangement Syndrome level 6.

  • samuel severino

    You have no idea what you are talking about. Clearly. This presidency is a military operation, Trump is just the face of it. It is the reason that he stopped taking intelligence briefings every morning from the FBI and The CIA because they were misleading him. He only takes briefings from the NSA. No president in history has been more protected by the military. It is the reason why you have never seen a current or retired vet on tv talking bad about Trump. Only the Deep State puppets talk bad about him. The military knows what is going on.

  • samuel severino

    Which President that never served in the Armed Forces are you talking about? Obama or Trump? Because one of them decimated the military and the other one quickly built it back up.
    One of them presided over endless wars and enabled the rise of ISIS and handed out 12 billion in cash while the other one started stopping endless wars and crushed ISIS in a year and shut off their money supply.

    That's where Russia comes in. Since Melania is supposedly multi-lingual she'll be a great asset to him living in East Europe. Somewhere he can't be extradited back to the U.S. for his crimes.

    You sound jealous because China built some bad azz infrastructure and The Donald can't even get a wall built to protect this country. Sit yo' azz down somewhere.

  • NipseyHusslewasatrueKing

    Never jealous of somebody else's doing good but since you so pressed about it, go live there. You wouldn't have to waste time telling us, when you could be living there enjoying the scenery. Glad Donald isn't using my money to build an unnecessary wall. It's not going to stop them from coming over, under or around to get here. I'm already sitting enjoying this warm, beautiful weather.

  • TransMichelle

    So because I posted photos of this beautiful structure I'm pressed about it? NO...you all up in your feelings because my post went right over your head. America's infrastructure is in a shambles but the Demoncrats (that you admire) don't want to do anything for this country but they want to bring in 100'000s of illegals and give them free healthcare, schooling, etc. If walls don't matter then tear down the walls of your home then. Let everybody in I mean why would you need walls...child STFU...!

  • NipseyHusslewasatrueKing

    Now you know my political stance, because I'm against America wasting money on something that will not be in the country's best economical interests. You reached all the way to China for that one. Your comment didn't go over my head or anybody's else. Your original comment about China's airport infrastructure is lost due you inclusive target to one group without knowing if the all parties would agree to the funding. Question...Where are they going to get this money from? You act as if the US have vineyard of money trees that they can go pick dolloars from to put towards the remodeling and building new airports in every states. Oh by the way my 9 yrs old would tell you that's not feasible, so, try again.

  • TransMichelle

    If you don't give a sh*t about the 100'000s of illegals coming across the border who will be settled in black neighborhoods "first" then you are a dam fool. They're coming all the way from Africa with suitcases financed by anti-Americans like you. This is part of where your tax dollars are going rather than to work on the infrastructure of this country. I guess no money should could to cleaning up the water supply either? Look at Flint, Michigan, look at the homeless in LA, look at the human feces problem in San Francisco and now the spread of disease that was once eradicated in this country are returning, but according to you it's all good...PITIFUL

    You should be for funding for the improvement of this country but you don't care. You're selfish...! If a wall is such a waste then tear down the walls of your home...I mean, why have walls if they don't matter. Israhell built a wall and after Hungary built their wall illegal immigration was cut down nearly 100%. You're not logical and you are simply going by "feeeelings." You don't get nuance. The point is that America is supposed to be a 1st world industrial country but because of Demoncrats wanting to fund illegals and give money for wars and abortion and other destruction, this country's infrastructure is tearing apart and it starting to look like a hellhole but China supposedly a 2nd world country is improving their infrastructure. I feel sorry for your 9 year old son stuck with a foolish parent who has no idea about what the f&ck is going on and can't teach him sh*t because you're delusional and boring I'm about to drop you.
