High five or hands praying? Twitter unveils #TrumpKimSummit emoji
The emoji features two hands meeting and is available using a number of different hashtags, like #TrumpKimSummit, #SingaporeSummit and #TrumpKim.
Some people appeared confused about whether the emoji showed hands praying or a high five. Not everyone was pleased with Twitter’s decision.

A high five emoji? #TrumpKimSummit— John Kirtley ❖ (@johnkirtley) June 10, 2018
The historical summit between the two leaders is to take place in Sentosa island in Singapore on Tuesday. It is the first time a North Korean leader has met a current US president, and comes after Trump and Kim’s war of words that triggered fears of a real war on peninsula.
Twitter isn’t the only company to come up with a creative way to mark the historical gathering. In Singapore, everything from coffee cups to burgers and tacos are getting the summit treatment.
Wolf Burgers in Singapore has created a Burger for World Peace, with American cheese and Korean Bulgogi shabu brisket. Lucha Loco is selling “Rocket Man” and “El Trumpo” tacos. There is even a Bromance cocktail being sold.
The Singapore Mint produced a special medallion for the summit. A gold one costs over S$1,000 ($750) and a silver costs S$100 ($75).
