President Trump has made history by being the first sitting US president to set foot in North-Korea.
This is yet another historic event which Trump was a part of when it comes to North-Korea.
Trump was also the first sitting US president to shake hands with North-Korean dictator Kim Yong-Un.

President Trump crossed the small curb seperating the North and South at 3:45 PM local time.
The Korean Demilitarized Zone or DMZ is one of the most militarized borders in the world.

Many Koreans are thankful that President Trump is trying to help alleviate tensions between the two sides.
Many South-Koreans still have family members living in the North, and many hope that one-day North-Korea would open up to the world and allow those who want to leave the North to do so.

Two Norwegian lawmakers have already nominated President Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts in the peninsula.
If President Trump can continue easing tensions in the peninsula, there is no doubt that he would deserve the Nobel Peace Prize.

Some have argued that Trump is legitamizing the North-Korean dictator who is known to be a ruthless leader, who ordered the execution of his own half brother and his uncle.

Others argue that continued pressure on the North would lead to a war between the North and South, which could end up being nuclear.
