Trump Makes History by Walking into North Korea. Could This Help to Finally End the Korean War?

President Trump made history Sunday when he became the first sitting U.S. president to step foot in North Korea.

Trump was there to visit North Korean leader Kim Jong-un at the military demarcation line at the Korean Demilitarized Zone. Kim then invited Trump to cross the line, which has divided North and South Korea since 1953. Trump then took about 20 steps into North Korea.

Following the meeting at the DMZ, Trump and Kim held a three-way gathering with South Korean President Moon Jae-in. Sunday marked Trump and Kim’s first meeting since nuclear talks broke down in February. More nuclear talks are reportedly scheduled to begin in the coming weeks.
