SINGAPORE -- As promised earlier, the infamous impersonators of U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un have appeared in Singapore once again to hold their own summit.

Kim's impersonator, an Australian-Chinese man, who goes by the name of Howard X, was seen posing and walking along the streets of central Singapore on May 27, but Dennis Alan, who has impersonated Trump, was not able to come. Alan later assured fans that they would come back.

The dynamic duo kept their words, making their appearance together for a meal on Saturday evening. They can be seen laughing and shaking the hands of customers as they graced through the crowds in a seafood restaurant. Countless videos were posted online. Many were seen whipping their phones out to capture the once-in-a-lifetime "chilli crab summit."

Howard and Dennis were served with dishes that reflected their hairstyles and Singapore's famous Chilli Crab and Black Pepper Crab dishes. Footages showed the two happily chomping down on their meals with plastic gloves and aprons.

The two were hired by Vybes, a startup mobile platform for users to interact with fans who can download the app to pay for a selfie with either one. It cost $10 to take a picture with one of them and a discount was offered at $15 for both of them. Industry sources said about 100 fans turned up for the event.
