Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un meet in Vietnam to discuss denuclearization, the vague promise they made at their historic first summit. However, history may be repeating itself, as nuclear test sites were discovered months after the first summit. Will “one destiny’ regress into “fire and fury?”
Ahead of a summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un, Vietnam has deported a man who impersonates the North Korean leader.
Howard X, a Hong Kong resident who is a Kim Jong Un lookalike, and Trump impersonator Russell White were detained by authorities during a TV interview last week after staging a fake summit, the BBC reports.
“Both Russell and I are annoyed at being monitored 24/7, but at the same time honored that the government felt that we as impersonators were considered important enough for them to spend their resources keeping tabs on us,” Howard X said on Facebook.
Monday, Vietnamese officials sent Howard X out of the country because he said his visa was invalid. White was permitted to stay, but was asked to stop impersonating Trump in public, Agence France-Presse reports.
