Transcript for Pompeo confirmed as secretary of state, North and South Korea hold historic summit
And thank you for joining us this Sunday. In Michigan last night, president trump was unfiltered and unrestrained. Capping off a turbulent week of nomination drama. Legal twists. And foreign dignitaries at the white house. But it was a meeting between north and South Korea's leaders that captured the world's attention. North Korea's Kim Jong-un and South Korea's president moon taking the first steps on what may be an historic journey. Kim shaking hands with the south Korean leader. Crossing into south Korean soil. The two of them crossing back to North Korea hand in hand. A few small steps. A giant symbolic gesture. Both leaders pledged to formally end the Korean war. Sealing their joint declaration with a hug. And appearing together in front of the press. President trump hailed the meeting as a major breakthrough that he made possible.
