However, one never knows with North Korea but it seemed like Donald Trump used tricks he knows best to convince Kim Jong-un of his sincerity as well as titillate him with ideas of economic riches to get the ruler of the "hermit kingdom" on the path to denuclearization.

All eyes were on President Donald Trump and North Korean Chairman Kim Jong-un on Monday, June 11, as the two leaders met in Singapore for a landmark summit to discuss nuclear disarmament.

The North Korean leader smiled as he was allowed a rare look inside the $1.6 million vehicle which is created to survive a military-style or chemical warfare attack.

Trump said they had "it on a cassette and an iPad".

Trump made the comments as he and Kim walked together along balcony as they headed to a larger meeting with aides. A buoyant Trump then addresses the photographers, saying: "Getting a good picture everybody - so we all look nice, handsome and thin and flawless".

"As I've mentioned just now, I have determination to start a huge undertaking, which others haven't tried, by using today as an opportunity", Kim said, continuing to say that he had "made excellent start with the President although there will be difficulties". Kim has been accused of horrific rights abuses against his people.

Vice-minister of DPRK Foreign Affairs Choe Son Hui also criticized Bolton and U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, in a statement which prompted President Trump to briefly call off the meeting.

But the apparent showing off was brought to an abrupt halt moments later when the same aide quickly shut the door of the Beast and ushered Trump as well as Kim away from the presidential vehicle.

The US president has been pushing North Korea to dump its nuclear weapons, and formally end the war with South Korea.

Alluding to the North's concerns that giving up its nuclear weapons could surrender its primary deterrent to forced regime change, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters that the USA was prepared to take action to provide North Korea with "sufficient certainty" that denuclearization "is not something that ends badly for them".
