Trump Was Seen Saluting A North Korean Military Officer

Wochit - June 14, 2018

North Korea put out a propaganda video Thursday chronicling the summit between Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump .

The footage has some stand-out moments.

The most notable of these is the president is glad-handing a number of North Korean dignitaries and military officials.

Initially offering his hand for a shake, Trump is met with a salute from a North Korean military officer.

The president then salutes the military figure in turn — as the officer offers his hand.

BuzzFeed reported on the film with opens over a sunset as a voiceover states that North Korea will work towards “peace and harmony.” White House Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders "It's a common courtesy when a military official from another government salutes to return the gesture."
