Following the June summit in Singapore in which Trump and Kim met for the first time and signed a loosely-worded denuclearization agreement, Trump announced that “there was no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea.”

Trump referred to Kim as “Little Rocket Man” on Twitter last year as tensions were escalating between the United States and North Korea over the reclusive country’s nuclear weapons program.
Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won't be around much longer!

I spoke with President Moon of South Korea last night. Asked him how Rocket Man is doing. Long gas lines forming in North Korea. Too bad!

Fans of Sir Elton weren’t happy, saying on Twitter that Trump signing the legendary singer’s work and gifting it to a dictator “defaces” the CD.
Autographed insinuates Sir Elton signed it. This is a defaced copy.

“What an insult to Elton John.”
What an insult to Elton John.

Thought this was a joke.
Wish it was.

Sir Elton should sue for defamation of character 😂

Others couldn’t believe this story wasn’t something out of The Onion.
Surreal times when Onion Headlines are fact of the matter.

I actually looked back at where this tweet came from. Thought I was reading "The Onion".

“All the science I don’t understand, it’s just my job five days a week.” How appropriate.
