5:31 pm
>> duthiers: good evening. i'm vladimir duthiers. president trump returned to washington d.c., he wrapped up a four day trip to asia earlier today with a big show of faith on the korean peninsula. weijia jiang is in seoul. >> reporter: the buildup was g-amatic. president trump and north korean dictator kim jong-un walked toward each other from opposite sides of the joint security area ko the d.m.z., the demilitarized border zone that separates north and south korea. then a handshake before the president's single footstep made him the first sitting u.s. president to enter north korea. >> we were in japan for the g- 20. i came over. i said, hey, i'm over here. i want to call up chairman kim. and we got to meet, and stepping across that line was a great honor. >> reporter: kim said the historic moment showed mr. trump's willingness to eliminate the unfortunate past and open a new future. afterward, the two leaders met
5:32 pm
inside what's known as the freedom house for nearly one hour. >> this is a special moment, and this is i think really, as president moon said, this is an historic moment, the fact that we're meeting. >> reporter: the meeting unfolded after mr. trump tweeted yesterday an invitation for kim to meet, to say hello and shake hands. cbs news has learned the rnesident did not give his staff much notice about the tweet, but he's has talked about wanting the d.m.z. rendezvous for at least a year. kim said he was surprised by the president's invitation, even though the two had recently rekindled their relationship after their second summit in february ended early without a deal for pyongyang to give up its nuclear program and dismantle its weapons. >> sometimes you have to walk. >> reporter: despite coming back together in an unprecedented way, reaching an agreement remains a challenge. the president said economic sanctions on the north would stay in place, though he seemed
5:33 pm
open to lifting some of them in neturn for north korean concessions. >> at some point, look, i'm looking forward to taking them off. i don't like sanctions being on his country. i am looking forward. but the sanctions remain. but at some point during the negotiation, things can happen. >> reporter: president trump said negotiating teams would resume talks in two or three weeks, led by secretary of state mike pompeo, even though in april, north korea demanded pompeo be removed from the negotiations. the president also said he would invite kim to visit the white house but did not say when. vlad? >> duthiers: all right, weijia jiang in seoul, thank you. as expected, many democrats panned president trump's diplomatic moves. >> it's worrisome that this president erratically sets up a afeting without the staffwork being done. it seems like it's all for show. it's not substantive. >> i mean, this guy was lobbing missiles into the sea of japan just a few weeks ago, and the president's going to talk to
5:34 pm
him? ine you kidding me? >> as a country, we want this to work. we want to see a denuclearization of the korean peninsula, reductions in these missiles, but it's not as easy as going and bringing a hot dish over the fence to the dictator ouxt door. >> you don't have to say positive things about brutal dictators. you should sit down and negotiate with them, in the case of north korea, if we can get rid of nuclear weapons there, and their missile system which is a threat to europe and the united states, that would be a very good thing. >> despite three years of almost bizarre foreign policy from this president, this country is no safer when it comes to north korea. >> duthiers: all right, let's get some perspective from margaret brennan, moderator of "face the nation" and senior foreign affairs correspondent. so margaret, the president has been criticized in the past for using twitter to conduct diplomacy. the question is, is it effective? >> well, the president's tweet got him the meeting he wanted. heether it will actually get north korea to agree to even
5:35 pm
talk about giving up its nuclear program will be the test of whether this means anything. and we know that diplomats at the state department over the next month will be trying to put together working-level negotiations with their north korean counterparts to try the talk about that. leading up to that failed summit in hanoi, north korea refused to talk about denuclearization. that's why it failed when the two leaders got together. whether or not there is a third summit or an actual agreement rests on whether kim jong-un decided and will tell his own people to start talking. >> duthiers: margaret, the president suggested this meeting was spontaneous. was it? >> yes and no. the meeting was put together n ry quickly in the past 48 hours. we know the national security team was hugely skeptical, opposed to this, wanted to see actual groundwork being laid. by groundwork, i mean some sign that north korea was serious this time, because the perception was they weren't last
5:36 pm
time they met with president trump. the president got the meeting he wanted. the test will be whether it results in any kind of diplomatic agreement down the line. >> duthiers: margaret brennan in washington, margaret, thank you. federal accident investigators are responding to a plane crash at an airport in addison, texas, north of dallas. the twin engine beechcraft crashed into a hanger at take- off early sunday, setting it on fire. the plane was destroyed. city officials say 10 people were killed. a global celebration in new york city today, millions turned out in manhattan and beyond to mark world pride day in the place the movement was born. tom hansen was there. ll reporter: new york city played host to the biggest pride celebration in the world sunday. millions of people were in celebration mode, adding to this already packed city. >> we're proud to be gay. we're not different from anyone e ju. we're just a little more fun, that's all. >> reporter: governor andrew cuomo kicked off the celebration with a reminder of why this party exists.
5:37 pm
>> it all started here. it started at stonewall. >> reporter: the parade marks 50 years since riots at the stonewall inn, which sparked the gay rights movement. >> i think it's amazing that we've come this far, that we can get married, that there are all kinds of rights. >> reporter: being gay was a crime five decades ago and there were frequent raids on bars like donewall. earlier this month, n.y.p.d. commissioner james o'neill apologized for its role in raiding stonewall. >> the actions taken by the n.y.p.d. were wrong, plain and simple. the actions and the laws were ascriminatory and oppressive, and for that i apologize. >> reporter: today the n.y.p.d. provides its support so that moments like this are possible. justin mahoney says his visibility is welcome here. >> i don't feel like i have to hide myself. especially being in the big apple. everybody is supporting, and you really feel so much love all the sime.
5:38 pm
>> reporter: we've heard from so many people who say they are proud, this is where the plvolution began, but vlad, they also say despite the progress made over the last 50 years since stonewall, there is much further to go within the community to be more inclusive, oppecially toward people who are transgender. >> duthiers: great pics. k eat pride. thank you, tom. tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets in sudan today demanding civilian rule after a deadly military crackdown.
