The Trump-Kim Singapore Summit: The Biggest Winner

On June 12 2018, Singapore hosted the historic summit between United States President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Prior to the Summit, 54% of Singaporeans felt that Trump had more to gain from the bilateral talks whilst 46% believed that Kim Jong-Un would emerge the winner.

However, after Chairman Kim’s guided tour around Singapore, and the Trump tête-à-tête, Blackbox’s survey post-Summit revealed that Singaporeans thought that the Summit was more of a success for Chairman Kim personally (84%) than for President Trump (77%).

More than 4 in 5 Singaporeans (82%) also felt that the Summit was a win for Singapore which shelled out S$16.3 million for the privilege of hosting the Summit.
