Tale of the Tape: Trump vs. Kim


Forget Ali-Frazier, Hagler-Hearns, and Tyson-Holyfield. The real fight of the century is taking place today in a conference room at the Capella Hotel in Singapore. With so much at stake, even the slightest edge can make all the difference, that’s why Coconuts has taken the time to break down just how well US President Donald Trump and North Korea’s dear leader Kim Jong Un match up. To the tape!
