President Trump showed North Korean leader Kim Jong Un a four-minute video that cast the two leaders as men with a “destiny” to secure world peace during their summit on Tuesday. 

Trump showed the clip to Kim on an iPad, and he later presented the footage in English and Korean to journalists at a press conference.

The video is formatted like a movie trailer and the narrator speaks throughout about how few men can make a lasting impact on the world. At one point, the narrator says, “there only can be two results: one of moving back, or one of moving forward.” 

“Will this leader choose to advance his country and be part of a new world? Be the hero of his people?” the narrator says. “Will he shake the hand of peace and enjoy prosperity like he has never seen?” 

The clip also implies that a reconciliation between North and South Korea could be a sequel to the U.S. and North Korea’s historic summit. 

Trump commented on the video in the same press conference where he announced the agreement he and Kim reached after meeting. 

Trump said the U.S. would put an end to its joint U.S.-South Korea military exercises while negotiations with Pyongyang take place. He also announced that North Korea would destroy a missile testing site and that the U.S. would pledge to provide North Korea with “security guarantees” in exchange for denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

In the press conference, Trump also dismissed the idea that North Korea could utilize the video as propaganda.

Kim appeared to enjoy the short film and said many people will “think of this as a scene from a … science fiction movie,” according to The Associated Press.
