President Trump Has The Perfect Gift For NK Leader Kim Jong-Un

Is this outrageous or the greatest troll ever?

There was a meeting, handshake and agreement:

North Korean dictator that Kim Jong-Un would both return the remains of POWs from the Korean war and begin the denuclearization process.


Neither of those things has come to pass yet, so President Donald Trump is upping the ante with perhaps the greatest gift ever. USA Today reports:

President Donald Trump confirmed Tuesday that he has a gift for North Korea leader Kim Jong Un: An Elton John CD that includes the song “Rocket Man.”

Trump, who famously referred to Kim as “Little Rocket Man” back before he opened talks with the North Koreans about their nuclear weapons programs, said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was unable to deliver the music to Kim during a recent trip to Pyongyang.

“They didn’t give it; I have it for him,” Trump told reporters at the White House when asked about the classic Elton tune. “They didn’t give it. But it will be given at a different period.”


Kim refused to see Pompeo during a trip that appeared to be a setback to U.S. efforts to get North Korea to denuclearize.

Trump said earlier this week he still expects Kim to live up to a pledge that he signed when the two held their summit June 12 in Singapore.

Before leaving for his week-long trip to Europe, Trump stopped and spoke with reporters.

Amazingly, Trump and Kim actually spoke about the song – “Rocket Man” during their summit in Singapore and the President thought up the gift as he was sending Pompeo back to North Korea for more talks.

“Trump remembered the conversation and told Pompeo to take a CD with the song for Kim,” Chosun Ilbo reported. “He reportedly wrote a message on it and signed it.” According to the South Korean paper:

One diplomatic source in Washington said, “The ‘Rocket Man’ CD was the subject of discussion during Trump’s lunch with Kim. Kim mentioned that Trump referred to him as ‘rocket man’ when tensions ran high last year” after a series of nuclear tests and missile launches by the North. “Trump then asked Kim if he knew the song and Kim said no.”

What do you think? Is this the greatest gift of all or completely ridiculous? Sound off below!
