President Trump‘s and the U.S. delegation spent a nice chunk o’ change on the summit with Kim Jong-un in Singapore … TMZ has learned.

According to federal docs — obtained by TMZ — that document lodging and other expenses for the trip … the American Embassy in Singapore is on the hook for about $162k. About $151k of that pertains to costs incurred at the Shangri-La Hotel, where the U.S. delegation, including the Prez, stayed leading up to the face-to-face.

An additional $12,000 was charged to cover the carpets used for Trump’s meeting with Kim at the Capella Hotel.

Unclear how much Trump himself was charged specifically to stay at the Shangri-La Hotel … he was only there for 2 days, after all. But the receipts do show that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo‘s team was singled out for a bit more than $8k of the grand total.

Diplomacy doesn’t come cheap.
