Despite being in the midst of starting a trade war with Canada, U.S. President Donald Trump still has time to continue cozying up to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Following a summit in Singapore between the notorious leaders last month, Trump has delivered an unusual gift to Kim Jong Un — a copy of Elton John‘s “Rocket Man.”
Trump famously has famously referred to Kim Jong Un as “Little Rocket Man” over the past year — an insult to the leader during North Korea’s ramped-up ballistic missile testing last year.
As Korea’s Chosun Ilbo reports, Trump brought up his “Rocket Man” nickname in Singapore, asking Kim Jong Un if he’d ever heard the John song of the same name. He said he hadn’t.
As such, Trump has sent him a CD featuring the classic tune, which U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will deliver to Kim Jong Un during his visit to Pyongyang. He arrived in North Korea earlier this morning.
We can’t wait for Kim Jong Un to return the favour by recording his own original track called “Dotard.”
