President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong arrived in Singapore And Roads Got Blocked Off

 

President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had arrived in  Singapore ahead of their historic summit on Tuesday.

Media teams are on the ground in Singapore and says the roads are blocked off along the routes Kim and President Trump will travel. There are swarms of reporters at the JW Marriott, where the U.S. press is based. The balconies are stuffed with cameras, reporters and technicians, and the restaurant tables are filled with journalists. The International Press Filing center has more than 3,000 reporters from around the world. But beyond the media swarm, Singapore is a sprawling city, and most seem to hardly notice these two leaders are in town.

Outside the St. Regis Hotel in Singapore, where North Korean leader Kim Jung Un is staying, the media was confined to the sidewalk. But a few North Korean cameramen, dressed in dark suits, were allowed on the street, just behind the police barricades.
