When Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited North Korea earlier this year, President Trump did not let him go empty-handed. The Commander In Chief, who famously called the North Korean dictator "Rocket Man" had Pompeo gift him with a CD of the song "Rocket Man".

According to Fox News:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reportedly brought a CD with the Elton John song “Rocket Man” to give as a gift to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during his visit to the country.

Pompeo arrived in North Korea on Friday amid talks between the two countries over denuclearizing North Korea.

Pompeo brought two gifts for Kim, including a letter from President Trump and the CD, according to The Chosun Ilbo, a top newspaper in South Korea.

Last year, amid escalating rhetoric between the two countries, Trump repeatedly referred to Kim as “Rocket Man” and “Little Rocket Man.”

This may be the biggest power move of all time. It is unclear is Sir Elton John, who sings the song, knew anything about his contribution to the diplomatic relations of the United States.
