President Donald Trump and the White House administration was all business when the U.S. met with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un during a 2018 Singapore summit.
The meeting had been a step toward denuclearizing the dictator state.
But according to former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, dissolving the state’s missiles wasn’t the only thing on Kim’s mind.

In her new book — “Speaking for Myself” — she relives the exchanges between Sanders, Trump, and Kim. Including what she said took place that left Trump roaring with laughter.
By her account, she saw “Kim staring at me. We made direct eye contact and Kim nodded and appeared to wink at me.”
“I was stunned. I quickly looked down and continued taking notes.”
“… All I could think was,” she wrote. “‘What just happened? Surely Kim Jong Un did not just mark me!?’”
But it seems he did — and Sanders wasn’t the only one who noticed.
“Kim Jong Un hit on you,” Trump later told Sanders. “He did. He f***ing hit on you.”
He joked that she had to make a huge sacrifice for the greater good of the country.
“Well, Sarah, that settles it,” Trump said, according to Sanders. “You’re going to North Korea and taking one for the team! Your husband and kids will miss you, but you’ll be a hero to your country!”
The end result, she says, was then-White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, Trump, and her all laughing hysterically.
