Trump-Kim Summit: What Trump and Kim Jong's signatures reveal?
US President Donald Trump and North Korea leader Kim Jong Un's historic summit in Singapore has been watched closely by journalists around the world. Even their signature on the bilateral documents did not go unscrutinized by the experts.
Jonathan Cheng, Seoul Bureau Chief of Wall Street Journals tweeted the picture of documents signed by the leaders.
Northeast Asia analyst in Cambridge, John Nilsson-Wright has been looking for clues in the two leaders' signatures. John Nilsson, who observed the signatures, tweeted, "In the signature wars, size, intensity and trajectory matter. Trump's emphatic, horizon-hugging, short-term get-the-job-done self-assurance vs Kim's soaring, aspirational all-to-play-for ambition."
