Watch: BBC Shares Video Aired by North Korea of Trump Appearing to Salute Kim’s General
North Korea’s state news service this week has aired footage that purports to show President Donald Trump saluting one of leader Kim Jong-un’s generals.
The footage, which has not yet been verified as authentic, shows Trump in Singapore shaking hands with assorted North Korean officials.
When he approaches a uniformed general, the president initially holds out his hand for a handshake. The general responds by giving the president a salute — and the president, in turn salutes back.
The general then extends his hand for a formal handshake.
Watch the video, which was captured by the BBC’s global media monitoring service, below.
