President Donald Trump's close relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has raised plenty of eyebrows — and now it's been memorialized in the White House itself, where a photo of the two leaders now hangs in the West Wing. 

Trump and Kim have met three times during Trump's presidency. They gathered for a nuclear summit in Singapore in June 2018, a second summit in Hanoi, Vietnam this past February, and met at the de-militarized zone (or the DMZ) last month. 

The photo in the White House, posted to Twitter by Bloomberg White House reporter Jennifer Jacobs, shows the two leaders at the DMZ, which Trump visited after the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan.

Trump, accompanied by his daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, became the first US president to step into North Korea.

After Trump and Kim's meeting at the DMZ, Trump sent out a complimentary tweet about Kim, who oversees one of the most repressive regimes in the world. 

"It was great being with Chairman Kim Jong Un of North Korea this weekend. We had a great meeting, he looked really well and very healthy - I look forward to seeing him again soon," Trump wrote, adding, "In the meantime, our teams will be meeting to work on some solutions to very long term and persistent problems. No rush, but I am sure we will ultimately get there!"
