US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed a "comprehensive" document on Tuesday following a historic summit in Singapore aimed at the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.
"There we have him".
As she was talking about the upcoming summit between the US president and the North Korean leader, she candidly described Trump and Kim's summit as a meeting between "two dictators". Guest and former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci didn't catch it.
Before signing what Trump described as a "comprehensive letter", Kim said the two leaders had a historic meeting "and made a decision to leave the past behind". "I do want to point out that earlier, as you know sometimes on live TV sometimes you don't always say things perfectly", she said. "Anthony, talk to us about this moment".
Mr Scaramucci did not appear to notice the error, and replied: "Yeah, because Trump is a disruptive risk-taker".
Trump responded to such commentary on Twitter, saying: "The fact that I am having a meeting is a major loss for the US, say the haters & losers".
She also tweeted a second apology in the afternoon, "I'll never claim to be a ideal human being".
Prior to the meeting held at Capella Hotel in Singapore's resort island of Sentosa, Trump had said that he would know "within the first minute", whether any agreement would be possible.
Responding to the controversy Sunday afternoon, Huntsman, who just so happens to the be the daughter of U.S. Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman, called on people on Twitter to "move on to things that actually matter". He can take that nation, with those great people, and truly make it great.
Huntsman apologized later on the show, acknowledging her mistake.
