Hanoi’s warm reception for President Trump captured by White House photographer

US President Donald Trump came to Vietnam on February 26 for a high-stake meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
 
The high expectation for the summit made Hanoi at the center of worldwide attention, however, what made Vietnam’s capital standout was the warm welcome and hospitality from local people to US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
 
Both Trump and Kim have expressed their gratitude for the affection from Hanoians.
 
Kim reportedly said that he has been through a long way of more than 3,000 kilometers to Vietnam and thanked the country for such hospitality and warm reception. As Kim got into a Mercedes Benz vehicle on his way to Hanoi for his high-stake meeting, he waved from the car to people lining in the street, a move hardly seen during his time in Singapore for the first US – North Korea summit, due to security reason. 
 
In case of Trump, less than half an hour from setting his foot in Vietnam, the most powerful man on earth wrote in his Twitter account: "Just arrived in Vietnam. Thank you to all of the people for the great reception in Hanoi. Tremendous crowds, and so much love!”
 
Nevertheless, the hospitality of Hanoi has also been extended to nearly 3,000 international reporters from 200 media outlets in 40 countries and territories coming to Hanoi to deliver news about the event, when locals were ready to offer hot coffee and tea for them to feel more comfortable as the weather became colder, much to the surprise of those foreign guests. 
 
At the International Media Center (IMC) – located at the Friendship Cultural Palace, Hanoi’s authority has invited the city’s best cuisine artisans to serve their specialties to foreign reporters at the cafeteria. 

In addition to 40 European and Asian-styled dishes, the cafeteria offers nine specialties of Hanoi for free, including pho Thin (Thin noodles served with beef), bun thang (noodles with chicken broth), bun cha (noodles with grilled meat), xoi Phu Thuong (Phu Thuong sticky rice), among others. 

Moreover, foreign reporters are offered free tour and bus service between February 25 and March 2 for their convenience during the summit. 
 
As Trump is on his way back to Washington after the conclusion of the summit, here are some of the photos captured by White House photographer Shealah Craighead during the US president trip to Vietnam:
