Reciprocity is the key to any successful relationship.

In today’s clip, Conan O’ Brien reveals Kim Jong-un’s loving short film dedicated to his new pal President Trump. Apparently smitten over Trump’s super-cheese short film that debuted at the Singapore summit, the DPRK dictator promises several goodies.
