President Donald Trump says Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was unable to deliver Trump’s gift of an autographed Elton John CD to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on his trip to Pyongyang this week.
Trump signed a copy of the British singer’s “Honky Chateau” album, which includes his hit song “Rocket Man,” for Pompeo to give to Kim on his trip. Previously, Trump had nicknamed Kim as “Little Rocket Man” over his nuclear claims.
“They didn’t give it. I have it for him. They didn’t give it,” Trump told reporters as he left the White House Tuesday for meetings in Europe.

“But it will be given at a certain period – I actually do, I actually do have a little gift for him, but you’ll find out what that gift is when I give it,” Trump added.
Pompeo’s visit was meant to negotiate the details of Trump’s nuclear agreement with Kim. Unfortunately, Pompeo did not get the chance to meet with the North Korean leader during his visit.
