What Did the Body Language of President Trump and Kim Jong Un Say About Historic Summit?
Body language expert Tonya Reiman analyzed their every move for Inside Edition.
While Monday's Singapore summit appeared to ease decades of tensions between the U.S. and North Korea, what did the body language say about the first-ever meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Un?
To find out, Inside Edition sought out body language expert Tonya Reiman, who reviewed the mannerisms between the two leaders during their historic meeting.
In regard to the initial 12-second handshake between Trump and Kim, Reiman noted how Trump offered his hand first, an assertion of dominance.
“He won this, hands down,” she told Inside Edition.
Following the handshake, Reiman noticed Trump broke his grip before guiding Kim to turn toward the cameras.
"He leads everywhere he goes," Reiman said of Trump. "He's the one directing the entire routine."
As Trump continued to lead Kim into the room where their meeting took place, the President placed his hand on Kim’s back, a motion in which he "just came across as much more powerful," Reiman said.
Once the meeting came to a close, both men seem relaxed, but Reiman said Kim still appeared to be nervous.
“Kim has sweat on his face,” she said, pointing out that Trump, on the other hand, did not appear to be perspiring.
Reiman also recognized Trump's signature "grip and pull" move as they concluded their meeting.
"He pulls people into him," she said. "The closer you are to me the more powerful I am."
