Hanoi, Vietnam: Vietnamese authorities are not amused by the antics of two impersonators of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump.

The duo has been making rounds of Hanoi, taking pictures with curious onlookers ahead of the second summit of the two leaders next week.

A Kim lookalike, the Hong Kong-based impersonator who uses the name Howard X, wrote on Facebook late Friday that the two were questioned by immigration or police agents and threatened with deportation unless they stopped performing in public. He says they were questioned after giving an interview with the state-run Vietnamese TV and later confined to their hotel.

He says the intervention shows the heavy handedness of the communist authorities, which tolerate no dissident.
