Donald Trump became the first U.S President to enter North Korea on Sunday, taking a few steps inside the nation’s territory in a meeting with the country’s Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un.
The President had chosen to engage in an impromptu meeting with the North Korean leader while attending the nearby G20 Summit in Japan. President Trump has made unprecedented diplomacy with North Korea a highlight of his Presidency, reaching out with an olive branch to the historically hostile socialist country.
President Trump and Kim Jong-un spoke at the meeting, with the Supreme Leader hailing the President’s decision to reach out in a sign of peace. Speaking in English, the North Korean leader told the President that it was “good to see you… I never expected to meet you in this place.” The two were meeting at a so-called “peace village” located in the heavily surveilled demilitarized zone marking the border between North and South Korea.
Watch the video of the historic meeting between Trump and Kim Jong-un:
President Trump went on to express his desire to attend a third diplomatic summit to resolve decades of hostility between North Korea and the United States. The President has offered generous proposals to the North Koreans in exchange to a commitment to denuclearization from the hereditary dictatorship, which is known for a level of isolation in the global community that is relatively unmatched.
After the meeting, the President went on to meet with U.S military service members deployed in the area.
“This is an historic moment, the fact that we’re meeting.” -President Donald Trump

Pope Francis Prays For Coronavirus Relief in Unprecedented Empty Vatican Audience
The Pope appeared alone.
Pope Francis prayed that God would comfort Italy and the world in the midst of the raging Chinese coronavirus epidemic, appearing in an unprecedented Vatican audience in Saint Peter’s Square. Papal events at the Vatican are almost always filled with pilgrims and the faithful, but the ceremony overseen by the Pope was entirely empty on account of the strict quarantine imposed on Italy as the nation reels from an unmatched death count from the disease.
Imagery of the event revealed the striking emptiness of the Vatican square, the overcast and rainy weather adding to the solemn nature of the papal event.

“May God’s blessing come down upon you as a consoling embrace,” said the Pope at the event. “Lord, bless the world. Give health to our bodies and comfort our hearts.”
The Pope encouraged prayer from the faithful for those directly involved in the response to the historic health epidemic- healthcare workers, doctors, grocery employees, police and volunteers.
The Pope chose to deliver the traditional ‘Urbi et Orbi’ address at the event, a Vatican tradition that is usually reserved for Christmas and Easter. The prayer implied the likely cancellation of Vatican Easter proceedings, with the devastation caused by the coronavirus in Italy likely precluding any major gatherings within the coming months, at least. Reports indicate that the Pope will celebrate traditional Good Friday and Easter Sunday masses, but alone, in a manner similar to Friday’s papal appearance.
Catholic Sunday Masses have been entirely cancelled in Italy, a nearly entirely unprecedented development that speaks to the gravity of the situation in the disease-stricken country. The nation had its worst day in terms of casualties on Friday, with deaths rising to 9,134, with a total national count of almost 87,000.
