As Donald Trump made history Sunday by becoming the first sitting US president to set foot on North Korean soil, new White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham was reportedly injured in a confrontation with North Korean officials.
Grisham suffered bruises when a scuffle broke out between North Korean security guards and members of the media trying to get close to President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as they shook hands at the Demilitarized Zone, the Associated Press reported.
The new press secretary was reportedly pushing back against the guards, trying to help members of the White House press corps position themselves to cover the historic moment between Trump and Kim. Part of the altercation can be seen in this video:
Several reporters tweeted about the clash between the guards and the media.
The spokeswoman was later seen directing reporters outside the building where the Kim-Trump meeting was being held.
Tucker Carlson of Fox News reported that tensions were high at one point as security officers of all three nations surrounded the three leaders, some of them well-armed, as they attempted to control the many members of media trying to get closer access.
