Watch the Truly Bizarre Fake Movie Trailer Trump's White House Played for Kim Jong-un: 'Destiny Pictures Presents'

Donald Trump played a video for North Korea leader Kim Jong-un during their historic meeting in Singapore Tuesday that features a fake movie trailer and the phrase “Destiny Pictures presents," Gizmodo reports.


The fake trailer was played for reporters before a press conference Trump held Tuesday, according to Gizmodo. Affixed with the whitehouse.gov logo, the video is a cinematic masterpiece. Generic images of iconic landmarks including Times Square, the Colosseum and the Taj Mahal are spliced with photos of generic scientists a generic girl dancing in a field. A voiceover welcomes the world to imagine a “sequel” to the “cycles that never seem to end.”

“Seven billion people inhabit planet Earth,” the voiceover says. “Of those alive today, only a small number will leave a lasting impact. And only the very few will make decisions or take actions that renew their homeland and change the course of history.”

After presenting the rest of the plot of “Destiny Pictures” next blockbuster, the voiceover notes the film “[Features] President Donald Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un ... in a meeting to remake history. To shine in the sun.”

“One moment, one choice, what if?” the voiceover asks. “The future remains to be written.”
