Virginia Democratic Senator Tim Kaine tweeted an insult directed at President Trump after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave North Korean leader Kim Jong Un a CD that included Elton John’s “Rocket Man” on Friday.

Pompeo brought Kim two gifts on his current trip to North Korea: the Elton John CD and a letter from president Trump. (RELATED: SECRETARY POMPEO TOOK A GIFT ALONG TO KIM JONG UN MEETING — AND IT’S PURE DONALD TRUMP)
Senator Kaine joked that Kim should give Pompeo a copy of Green Day’s “American Idiot.”
President Trump commonly referred to Kim as “rocket man” in the past prior to their summit.
Sanctions and “other” pressures are beginning to have a big impact on North Korea. Soldiers are dangerously fleeing to South Korea. Rocket man now wants to talk to South Korea for first time. Perhaps that is good news, perhaps not – we will see!

Pompeo has been going back and forth to North Korea as he and Kim work toward denuclearization and creating a good relationship between the two countries.
The secretary of state is expected to land in Pyongyang on Friday and will resume conversations about bringing home the bodies of American soldiers who died there during the Korean War.
