Transcript for Unprecedented security for Trump, Kim summit
Okay, George, as you know the security at that historic summit extremely tight. Reportedly costing Singapore about $15 million. Our foreign correspondent James Longman is outside Kim's hotel in Singapore where the police are on high alert. Good morning to you, James. Reporter: Good morning, robin. When the most powerful man in the world meets arguably the most dangerous you can bet security will be tight. That's exactly the case. Take a look. We're outside the St. Regis hotel where Kim Jong-un is staying. We've already caught a glimpse of that rather odd security detail he has who runs alongside his motorcade. Outside you can see heavily armed police checking vehicles here. Police with machine guns down the road and that road there is totally blocked off. You can imagine for Kim Jong-un who is used to choreographed controlled events back in north Korea that this being so exposed is certainly a new thing. This hotel, the hotel where Donald Trump is staying and sentosa island in the waters around it have been designated special security Zones, that mean bag search, body searches and Singapore was chosen, part of the reason because it has a pretty massive security infrastructure and take a hard look at law and order. If you haven't got a permit and on the island itself they banned any protest so for both Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump and, of course, the singaporian government no one is taking any chances. James, thanks very much. Much more from George and our entire team live in Singapore all morning long.
