And she tweeted. “Our President is relentlessly pursuing his commitment to make the world a safer place. Diplomacy is forged through dialogue. Change requires bold thinking. Today was an important step on the path to peace.”

On Sunday, Trump became the first serving US president to cross the border into North Korea.
