Singapore, June 10: Two days before two of the world's most powerful heads of States - US President Donald Trump and North Korea's Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un - arrive in Singapore for the historic summit, their well-known impersonators have already thronged the island nation, sharing lighter moments together.
The duo were also spotted together at the Winter Olympics in Seoul. Incidentally, the event led to the breaking of ice between the North and South Korea, which eventually led to Washington and Pyongyang climbing down the escalation letter.
Jong-un's impersonator, who goes by the pseudonym of Howard X, was reportedly stopped at Singapore airport on Friday by the immigration officers. After two hours of interrogation, he was allowed to enter the city.
Here are images of Trump and Jon-un's look-alikes going viral on social media:

The summit between Trump and Jong-un led delegations will begin from 9am local time on June 12. The much-anticipated meeting was almost called off earlier in the month after Trump had threatened to walk-out citing "hostile behaviour" by Pyongyang. However, the atmosphere was recreated for talks after Seoul's intervention, followed by a visit by Kim Yong-chol, North Korea's Second-in-Command, to Washington. Yong held talks with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in the White House, which led to the immediate announcement of the resumption of summit.
