Trump, Kim impersonators booted from Olympics

Trump, Kim impersonators booted from Olympics

But that's just what these two Americans, veterans of the 1950-1953 Korean War, did this week when they traveled to the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Pence has kept open the possibility for some contact with the North Koreans in South Korea, while reiterating Washington's insistence that denuclearisation is a necessary condition for peace on the Korean peninsula. US Vice President Mike Pence, sitting a few seats away in the same VIP booth, looked stony faced as the extraordinary scenes unfolded.

North Korea also sent athletes and cheerleaders as part of its 550-member delegation.

South Korean hockey player Park Jong-ah and North Korean hockey player Jong Su-hyon basically completed the hardest leg day ever in front of the entire world when they climbed the enormous set of stairs up to the torch in flawless unison, and people were seriously impressed.

People were confusing the name of the town with North Korea's capital of Pyongyang.

And second, USA and North Korean officials this high up the food chain rarely if ever get this close to one another - let alone in the midst of a tense nuclear standoff of the kind we've seen over the past several months.




"However, I will say that being here in South Korea, it seems like the Olympics, an event like this, has started a dialogue between North Korea and South Korea", Alan told reporters.

Neither Trump nor Kim were present at the opening ceremonies for the 2018 Winter Games. But Moon wants closer relations with North Korea as a way to build peace between the two countries.

Kim is also dispatching his younger sister, Kim Yo Jong, to attend the opening ceremony.

Kim Jong Un himself has not left North Korea or met any head of state since 2011 - the year he became the country's leader after the death of his father.

The U.S. delegation led by Pence will not be meeting with North Korean officials during its time in Pyeongchang.

NBCUniversal will present more than 2,400 hours of coverage of the PyeongChang Games - the most ever for a Winter Olympics.
