On Friday impersonators of Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un were escorted out of the opening ceremony for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
An air of political uncertainty hangs in the air of the 2018 Winter Games. Tensions between Donald Trump and Kim Jung Un have escalated with a series of tweets sent Trump comparing nuclear "buttons."
In contrast to the animosity between the US and North Korea, North and South Korea have made some strides towards unity, at least when it comes to the Olympics.
People were impressed with the resemblance.
It isn't clear why the two were escorted out except to say they were causing quite a stir and distraction.
Kim Jong Un's impersonator is an Australia musician known only as "Howard" and the Trump impersonator is identified as American Dennis Alan. Howard said about the prank:
“What we’d like to achieve by coming to South Korea at the Winter Olympics is that to show the world this is what peace could look like when two leaders get along.”
“We wanted to surprise everyone and bring world peace and then we’re being escorted out by security guards, which I think is really unfair. Doesn’t everyone want peace?”
People in Seoul were surprised to see what appeared to be U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un taking selfies.

Seems people prefer the impersonators over the real thing.
At least we know their deed is good. They want peace, they want talks, they don't want war or missiles, just like normal people.— Jane Liu (@xinyuActor) February 9, 2018
The world would be a much better place if they were real leaders.— Casper (@yokumura1215) February 9, 2018
Put the questions has to be asked, where was Putin?
