President Donald Trump says Secretary of State Mike Pompeo didn’t deliver Trump’s gift of an autographed Elton John CD to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on his trip this week. Mr. Pompeo didn’t get to meet Mr. Kim.
Mr. Trump signed a copy of the British singer’s “Honky Chateau” album, which includes his hit song “Rocket Man,” for Mr. Pompeo to give to Mr. Kim on his trip. Previously, Mr. Trump had derided Mr. Kim as “Little Rocket Man” over his nuclear claims.
Mr. Trump told reporters on Tuesday he still has the CD and “it will be given” at another time.
Mr. Pompeo’s visit was meant to negotiate the details of Mr. Trump’s nuclear agreement with Mr. Kim. North Korea later criticised Mr. Pompeo’s “gangster-like” demands in negotiations.
