WASHINGTON- The US president Donald Trump has gifted North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un a CD copy of Elton John’s song Rocket Man.

The significance of the gift dates back to last summer when Trump and the North Korean administration engaged in a war of words. At that time Trump had labelled Kim “little rocket man” in reference to the country’s nuclear ambitions.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo presented the CD to Kim Jong Un on July 5 when he arrived in the North Korean capital Pyongyang. Trump even wrote a message inside the CD case for Kim.
