But what does Kim Jong-un’s distinctive signature reveal about his personality?
Kim’s handwriting shows he has a “temper”, expert Tracey Trussell of Hand Right (www.handright.co.uk) observed to Express.co.uk.
“Kim Jung Un has got a temper, so I suspect he’s just as good as being hard lined as Trump.
“If he doesn’t get his way, he forces issues. It’s the blunt ending on the horizontal flyaway stroke that reveals his strong will.”
“I see the writing is ‘simplified’ which means he’s got a clever, agile mind that’s good at spotting where opportunities lie.
While Kim’s signature is based on the Korean alphabet system, Tracey said his layout and spacing is telling.
“Kim Jong-un’s writing is based on a different language system to English, so without sight of the Hangul copybook model of the Korean alphabet we can only assess the gestalt layout and spacing on the page.
“However, Kim Jong-un’s signature is large, dramatically rising on the page, and very broad with wide spacing.
“This means he’s an incurable optimist with an indomitable spirit, a broad mind and an enthusiasm for entrepreneurial deals, provided he’s given plenty of space to function.
“He wants to achieve something audacious and long lasting that will be seen as valuable for society and ensure his place in the history books.
“He likes getting to the root of a problem quickly, and deciding which issues are relevant, and which aren’t, to arrive at a practical solution.”
Finally, Tracey added Kim is a “also a loner, potentially out of touch with how other people feel”.
Kim’s handwriting wasn’t the only revealing thing about his appearance at the summit today.
A body language expert said that Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un’s meeting showed the power play between the two – but also “openness”.
Body language expert Judi James said: “Their initial greeting rituals might have lacked the beaming, quasi-fraternal-looking smiles and overt warmth of the equally historic greeting between Kim and South Korean president Moon Jae-in, but the first handshake between Trump and Kim Jong-un had a more businesslike, alpha feel to it with the firm, motivational handshake seeming to imply a message of ‘Come on, we can do this.’”
“The two men strode together from either side, with Trump taking the hosting role by initiating the shake, holding his hand out in an intentional gesture from three paces away.
Judi said Donald showed more “pleasure” when meeting Kim compared to his meetings with other leaders. She said: “Unlike some of his signature power shakes with other leaders this extended hand involved a cocked thumb and bared palm to suggest openness and a degree of pleasure at the meeting.
“The two men stood face-to-face and close together to perform their shake, with the joined hands held at chest height between them.
“The proximity meant it was more if a juddering clasp than an up and down shake and the quite intense signalling involved about 23 judders, which would create an energetic, motivational feel.
