Doppelgangers of US President Donald Trump and North Korean leaders Kim Jong-un met in Vietnam's Hanoi on Thursday days before a meeting between the real leaders who will hold a second summit on February 27-28.
Heavily bronzed and freshly coiffed, Donald Trump's doppelganger says he has come to Hanoi to meet with a Kim Jong Un lookalike to end North Korea's nuclear ambitions, and maybe play a bit of golf.
'We're working toward peace. Through negotiations, with dialogue, we want to help North Korea of course,' said Trump impersonator Russell White, in a sharp suit and blue tie.
Out of character, the pair say they can make good money as impersonators -- as long as Kim and Trump are in the news.
"The good thing for Kim is he's always doing something interesting, also Trump," said Howard X, who charges a minimum of $3,500 for an appearance and says he once walked away with $15,000 for a gig.
Howard X says it takes him three hours to perfect the Kim look, carefully manicured hair, thick black glasses and suits from a top tailor in Hong Kong where he is based.
Though he's mastered the get-up, Trump is not entirely happy about it.
'Mr Kim please get a proper haircut, this sucks,' he said, standing on the steps of Hanoi's colonial-era Opera House with black-clad bodyguards and a swarm of media.
As for White, it only takes him 20 minutes to bronze his face -- excluding his under eyes -- and gel his blonde hair to look like the man he says is doing a great job.
"You're doing a difficult job, keep up the good work, we're going to make America great again," the full-time, Canadian-born impersonator said.
