“$20 million spent on 3 days for what?!”
The Trump-Kim Summit drew mixed reviews from Singaporean netizens. While many were tickled by the memes of Trump and Kim generated, several others also expressed their ire over the large sum of money spent for the event.
Reading a wide variety of opinions of the Summit — both positive and negative — help to inform our thoughts on the matter. It is important to remain both critical but also forward-looking in our perspective on international relations, for the betterment of both Singapore and the world.
Do you think the recent international recognition Singapore attained due to the summit justifies the S$20 million spent on it? Can you think of other side effects the Trump-Kim summit had on both Singapore and the world?
