    The day after fruitless nuclear talks with US President Donald Trump, Kim Jong-un stayed in Hanoi to kick off his official two-day Vietnam visit. This week, many eyes were on the trivia as the highly anticipated summit came away with no agreement.

    Trump and Kim failing to reach a deal took many observers unawares — and North Korean officials were no exception.

    A bunch of suited men, who appear to be North Korean security guards, were caught on camera running over and hopping into moving government vehicles.

    ​The reason for their hasty departure is unclear, but social media users have come up with a handful of explanations.

    The North Korean supreme leader's security escort was one of the highlights of this week's summit, when they were filmed jogging alongside Kim Jong-un's car.

    On Wednesday, Donald Trump's on Air Force One flight was delayed due to minor technical problems at the airport, when officials had to manually push a broken-down stair truck away from the runway.
