Secretary of State Pompeo Brings Kim Jong Un Elton John “Rocket Man” CD Signed by Trump

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo traveled to North Korea for nuclear talks with Kim Jong Un.

Pompeo reportedly brought Kim Jong Un an Elton John “Rocket Man” CD signed by President Trump.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and his team finished talks with the North Koreans this evening.

The Korea Times reported:

U.S. President Donald Trump has sent through his envoy, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the 1972 Elton John song, “Rocket Man,” to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, reports said Friday.

Trump asked Kim during their June 12 summit in Singapore if he knew of John’s song and Kim said no, Chosun Ilbo newspaper said, quoting unnamed sources in Washington.

Trump derided Kim as “little rocket man” in his tweets after North Korea launched a series of missiles last year at the height of tension between the two countries. Kim then called Trump a dotard.
