Trump gets Kim’s stamp of ap­proval

Daily Express - - NEWS - By News Re­porter

KIM Jong-un’s strange bro­mance with Don­ald Trump has taken a new twist with the re­lease of a range of stamps in North Korea fea­tur­ing the US pres­i­dent.

They mark their meet­ing in the de­mil­i­tarised zone in June.

It fol­lows a se­ries of stamps – on sale in the cap­i­tal Py­ongyang – launched in June to com­mem­o­rate the one-year an­niver­sary of their 2018 sum­mit in Sin­ga­pore.

The ear­lier stamps de­pict the firstever hand­shake be­tween Mr Kim and Mr Trump and their sign­ing of a joint agree­ment.

The pair had sparred for months over North Korea’s nu­clear threat be­fore their meet­ing led Mr Trump to then pub­licly flat­ter the Com­mu­nist dic­ta­tor as be­ing “very sharp” and a “real leader”.

But clearly three’s a crowd – none of the stamps fea­ture Moon Jae-in, the South Korean pres­i­dent who also at­tended the bor­der pow-wow.
