Trump casts Kim in starring role in film about North Korea’s ‘destiny’

In his pitch Tuesday to persuade Kim Jong-un to abandon nuclear weapons, President Trump cast the North Korean leader as the star of a movie. Mr. Trump, who starred in his own long-running reality television show “The Apprentice,” showed Mr. Kim a four-minute video near the end of their historic meeting that depicted the North Korean leader and Mr. Trump as two men who could change the course of history. The video, translated into Korean, was viewed by Mr. Kim and several members of his delegation on an iPad in the conference room as the talks concluded. The short film from “Destiny Pictures,” narrated with a musical score, has the feel of a movie trailer. It showed the two leaders on equal footing: “Two men, two leaders, one destiny.”
