During the historic summit in Singapore this week, President Donald Trump showed Kim Jong Un with a video that emphasized a message of peace.
The 4-minute video has gone viral, with nearly 4 million views on Facebook as of Wednesday afternoon. It was produced by Destiny Pictures.
The video was actually created by the National Security Council (NSC).
“The video was created by the National Security Council to help the President demonstrate the benefits of complete denuclearization, and a vision of a peaceful and prosperous Korean Peninsula,” NSC spokesman Garrett Marquis said in a statement.
“We had it made up,” Trump said after being asked by the media about the video. “I hope you liked it. I thought it was good. I thought it was interesting enough to show. One in English and one in Korean. And we had it made up. I showed it to him [Kim Jong Un] today. Actually, during the meeting – toward the end of the meeting. And I think he loved it.”
“About eight of their representatives were watching it, and I thought they were fascinated by it,” Trump added. “I thought it was well done. I showed it to you because that’s the future. I mean, that could very well be the future. And the other alternative is just not a very good alternative. It’s just not good.”
“Of those alive today, only a small number will leave a lasting impact,” the video’s narrator says, as clips of Trump and Kim Jong Un play in the background. “And only a very few will make decisions or take actions to renew their homeland, or change the course of history.”
The video flashes back to parts in history where there was both peace and war in North Korea.
“The past doesn’t have to be the future,” the narrator says. “Out of the darkness can come the light, and the light of hope can burn bright. What if a people that share a common and rich heritage can find a common future? Their story is well-known, but what will be their sequel?”
The narrator calls the video “a story of opportunity, a new story, a new beginning, one of peace. Two men, two leaders, one destiny,” all while shots of President Trump and Kim Jong Un are shown.
“A story about a special moment in time, when a man is presented with one chance that may never be repeated,” the narrator says. “What will he choose? To show vision and leadership? Or not?”
