Yes, Amex GT. Call their hotline or login online to apply.
And if person does not have AMEX, and/or is NOT going to be moving to US, then where the plan goes?

Then you can't. I've never mentioned anything about being able to get an US Amex for any average Joe. Also, you don't need to be moving to the states either, all you need is an address, which could be your friend or relative's. For someone who's interested in opening the door to US cards which offer better benefits, I don't think applying for a 30k pa Amex card is too much to ask for. Furthermore, you get 13k miles after spending $1.5k in the first 3 months.

When you have a AMEX Platinum Card in SG, will you then get a US Platinum Card ? Will you then have to pay the annual fee for both US and SG cards?

You don't need a SG plat to get a US plat. Any SG Amex will work, even the capitacard that comes with first year AF waiver. You can choose to close the SG account, and only pay the AF for the US version. You can also possibly get a waiver for your SG card if you spent a lot on that card

Would the annual fee for the US AMEX be waivable in your experiences? Otherwise need to look for the lowest fee AMEX.

For the platinum? Only when you sign up using a promo link that may come with first year waiver. Because of the airline + Uber credits, they will be unlikely to waive subsequent AFs. If you can make use of the $200 in airline and Uber credits, your effective AF is only $150 instead of $550.

You also get $100 for global entry, hilton/spg/marriott gold, unlimited PP for you+1guest, a whole bunch of car rental elite status, centurion lounge access, and most importantly FHR. All your supplementary cardholders enjoy all the benefits minus the airline and Uber credits. All these for $150 a year? I'd take it without hesitation.

Can the uber credit be used in SG?

It doesn't work for actual Uber trips, but I have been able to use it for ubereats. Also, might wanna take this discussion elsewhere to stay on the topic of priority pass matters. I was merely providing an alternative solution, as some people are paying $500 for certain VI that offers unlimited PP for self+guest, or even the ridiculously priced $1.7k SG Amex plat charge.

Writing this from SATS at T2. Seriously meh - no cheese, pau is completely dry and just noodles and sausage.

If you have time and your flight departs from T2, I suggest to go to SATS at T3 and then get to T2 to your flight.
