Indian-Origin Man Spends Rs. 38,000 To “Crash Singapore Summit”, Meet Trump

SINGAPORE: An Indian-origin man from Malaysia went to Singapore and spent a whopping $573 to stay at a luxury hotel for one night so that he could get a chance to meet US President Donald Trump ahead of his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
Maharaj Mohan, a 25-year-old consultant, checked into his room at the Shangri-La hotel on Monday and started hanging at the hotel lobby today for a glimpse of Trump, Today newspaper reported.
However, Mr Mohan only got a selfie with The Beast, the eight-tonne bulletproof limousine in which the US President travels, the report said.
“Singapore dollar 765 ($573 or Rs. 38,600) is a big sum, more than 2,000 in ringgit. But it is not too much to meet the president,” he said.
Mr Mohan said that he knew he had a slim chance of meeting Donald Trump. Staying in the hotel wing adjacent to the US president, Mr Mohan had been sitting at the hotel lobby since 6:30 AM today to track the Donald Trump’s movements.
Yesterday, he had stood in the lobby for five hours, in a vain attempt to get the US president’s signature on his number one bestseller Trump: The Art Of The Deal.
All he managed to catch was a glimpse of Donald Trump at about 8 am today when he left the hotel for the summit in Capella hotel on Sentosa island.
“It is lonely being a Trump supporter in Malaysia,” Mr Mohan, a consultant at his father’s consultancy and training firm, said.
