President Trump sent a copy of Elton John’s album with the song “Rocket Man” to North Korea as a gift for leader Kim Jong-un, according to a report from South Korean Chosun Media.
Allegedly, the CD was one two gifts sent with Secretary of State Michael Pompeo on his two-day visit. The other was a letter from Mr. Trump.
The newspaper explained anonymous diplomatic sources in D.C. told them the two leaders discussed the “Rocket Man” nickname Mr. Trump gave to Mr. Kim, and the North Korean leader said he never heard the song.
According to NBC News, reporters on the ground asked Mr. Pompeo about the CD, but he neither confirmed nor denied it.
This is the third visit to North Korea for the secretary, but the first post-Singapore summit.
The visit comes amid concern that the budding nuclear state is continuing to covertly expand its nuclear and weapons program. It would violate the agreement made by Mr. Trump and Mr. Kim during their June meeting....Mr. Pompeo will be working to outline a timeline for North Korea’s verifiable denuclearization process.
