President Trump lastly created it to Vietnam — but he did it applying a ton of taxpayer dollars … and got a complete lot of nothin’ out of it from North Korea.
TMZ did some digging on the expense of Trump’s second summit with Kim Jong-un in Hanoi, and turns out it was at least $1.three million … substantially of which went toward placing Americans up for a couple of nights and creating confident they have been cozy.
According to federal procurement docs — obtained by TMZ — lodging alone for Trump and co. in the course of the two-day summit — which wrapped Thursday without the need of a deal on nukes or sanctions — ran Uncle Sam upwards of $632k amongst three hotels and miscellaneous charges.
The State Dept. foot the majority of that lodging bill, such as a separate $157k for lodging at the Melia Hanoi Hotel — exactly where Kim Jong-un stayed and exactly where the American press corp was staying as properly … ahead of obtaining booted by Kim’s camp.
According to reports, Kim became uneasy with the American press in such close proximity … so they have been eventually moved to a new hotel.
But, wait … there is far more!!!
The conference rooms alone exactly where Trump and Kim could not come to terms expense $316k, and points like lights, stereo systems, drapes and awnings ran about $100k all with each other. The Dept. of Defense dropped about $60k for leased world wide web lines.
There is far more cash that was spent as properly … with zero benefits.
