An Australian comedian who impersonates North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said on Monday authorities were deporting him from Vietnam, some 24 hours before the real Kim was due to arrive for a summit with U.S. President Donald Trump.
The Kim lookalike, who goes by the name Howard X, popped up in Vietnam’s capital of Hanoi on Friday along with his partner who impersonates Trump, drawing crowds and media.
The two real leaders are due to meet in Hanoi on Wednesday and Thursday for their second nuclear summit.
"North Koreans have no sense of humor," the impersonator told reporters before heading to Hanoi’s airport to leave the country.
"Satire is a powerful weapon against any dictatorship."
Howard X said earlier authorities had questioned him and warned him not to create any disturbance. His partner, Trump impersonator Russell White, was allowed to stay on in Vietnam.(Reuters)
