Photographers do some magic, make Trump, Kim look ‘nice, handsome, thin’
Singapore, June 12: It's truly a historic event when American President Donald Trump met North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un in Singapore on Tuesday. Forget about the outcome of the much-talked-about Singapore summit, the very fact that two most controversial world leaders of our times are meeting after overcoming several "obstacles" to pose for shutterbugs is something worth talking about.
The pictures of handshakes, pats and awkward bonhomie between the two leaders have been trending on social media much before the results of the event got unveiled.
One such moment which has left everyone in splits was when Trump was heard asking photographers to take "nice, handsome and thin" pictures of both the dignitaries standing in front of a massive dining table as a visibly nervous-looking Kim struggled to smile.

Of course, Trump was joking when he told photographers to take pictures that made him and North Korean leader look "handsome and thin."
According to pool reports, Trump made the comments to photographers and cameramen from the Singapore government's television channel, Host TV.
"Getting a good picture everybody? So we look nice and handsome and thin? Perfect," he said.
Now, everyone is wondering how to make both of them look "handsome and thin" which even best of Photoshop software will definitely fail to do so. While Kim harbours the grand illusion that he is the most handsome man with the best haircut in the world, Trump with his remark to photographers makes it clear that he is aware of the reality.
