  • President Donald Trump showed North Korean leader Kim Jong Un his presidential state car, a $1.5 million limousine also known as “The Beast.”
  • After Trump gestured towards the limousine, designed to sustain bullets, bombs, and chemical attacks, a Secret Service agent opened a passenger door and Kim smiled and peered in.
  • Trump’s gesture was perhaps an attempt to bond over their shared appreciation for luxury goods.

In a show of their newly friendly rapport, President Donald Trump gave North Korean leader Kim Jong Un a glimpse inside his presidential state car, a $1.5 million Cadillac also known as “The Beast.”

Media watched as the two leaders strolled around the grounds of the Capella Hotel in Singapore after lunch during their day-long summit — and then unexpectedly approached the president’s car.

After Trump gestured toward the limousine designed to sustain bullets, bombs, and chemical attacks, a Secret Service agent opened a passenger door and Kim smiled and peered in.

The North Korean dictator is known to be a fan of Western products, and the country’s ruling elite has imported growing amounts of luxury goods, including expensive cars, liquor, and musical instruments.

Trump described the meeting as “really fantastic” and said he and Kim got along well.

“A lot of progress. Really very positive. I think better than anybody could have expected. Top of the line. Really good,” the president told reporters.
