INSIGHT: Trump and Kim wind up Singapore summit | Reuters.com Reuters

SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Singapore said on Sunday it spent S$16.3 million ($12 million) on hosting the summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, less than earlier reports that had angered some locals. Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong had earlier estimated the event cost Singapore S$20 million. Foreign minister Vivian Balakrishnan said that included the cost of Kim’s hotel room. Those reports drew anger from some Singaporeans on social media – though one commentator said it was a small price to pay – the cost of a chicken-rice dish for each citizen – to contribute to regional peace.
