Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel mock Trump’s meeting with Kim Jong

Ahead of the meeting, Trump had said he would be able to work out within the first minute whether his North Korean counterpart was serious about making peace.

"The video was created by the National Security Council to help the president demonstrate the benefits of complete denuclearization, and a vision of a peaceful and prosperous Korean peninsula", NSC spokesman Garrett Marquis said in a statement.

Projecting authority comes easily to Trump, who as a global leader, businessman and former television personality is well-versed in using body language effectively.

Trump and Kim spent five hours meeting in Singapore for the summit, where the end result was a joint signing of documents that commit the USA and North Korea to a "peace regime" in the Korean peninsula.

When asked about the film at a press conference on Tuesday, Trump defended it as a masterstroke which he had sprung on Kim and his entourage.

"When I watch some of those things, I'm kind of embarrassed for those people, as great things are going on", Melissa Francis, the co-host of "Outnumbered", said after the program aired a reel of journalists criticizing Trump's praise of Kim and the president's slapdash approach to the summit.

On Monday, comedian Jimmy Kimmel pointed out a mistake made by one of the Fox News anchors covering the historic summit between the United States and North Korea.

Still, Trump's desire for dominance was on display. "Crazy" Castaldo said in a tweet, adding that he was trying to find out "why they used my company name".

"Oops. That's an oopsy truthsie right there", Kimmel said after the clip played.

GOP lawmakers and allies of Trump in media have taken heat from multiple networks over their stance on the North Korea summit.

Trump told ABC's George Stephanopoulous that he can only assess Kim based on their meeting.
