While U.S. President Trump is busy getting ready for a historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Twitter doesn’t want you to forget to tweet about it under the right hashtag.
In what may be called an uncanny and bizarre emoji, Twitter is promoting its new #TrumpKimSummit emoji for Tuesday’s summit in Singapore.
The event-specific symbol or what Twitter likes to call a hashflag features what appears to be a high-five between a hand representing the U.S. president and one representing the North Korean dictator.
Kim is known for executing his political enemies and exiling large swaths of his nation to prison camps, where they face starvation and torture.
As for the emoji, apparently they are high-fiving over the successful but by no means guaranteed or likely negotiation of an extremely delicate denuclearization agreement and the deescalated international threat of the mass loss of life through nuclear annihilation.
The summit won’t be Trump’s first foray into treating an established despot and human rights abuser like or perhaps better than the leader of an allied nation, though it is Twitter’s first time treating such an event like a Game of Thrones season finale.
