Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong met US President Donald Trump at the Istana on Monday afternoon (June 11), following the latter's arrival in Singapore last night.
The two gathered for a working lunch prior to the Trump-Kim summit tomorrow (June 12).
Stomp contributor Maria alerted Stomp to a circulated video apparently showing Trump's motorcade en route to the Istana in Newton today.
Trump's iconic state limousine, a nine-tonne bulletproof and bombproof Cadillac, was also sighted among the long line of vehicles.
Known as 'The Beast', the car has both highly defensive and offensive features such as:
Emergency oxygen supply in the event of a chemical attack
Kevlar-reinforced tyres that are resistant to punctures
Steel rims that allow the car to keep moving even on deflated tyres
An armour-plated fuel tank encased in protective foam to withstand crashes and small-arms fire
A steel plate beneath the car to protect the chassis system from bomb and grenade blasts
Pump-action shotguns, tear gas cannons and bumper-mounted tear gas grenade launchers in case of direct armed confrontation
According to Business Insider, a lead car serves as a guide and buffer for the President’s limousine which follows immediately behind.
The fleet also consists of at least one identical car for emergency and decoy purposes.
