Trump has given Kim Jong-un a bizarre gift as denuclearisation talks beginDonald Trump has signed and gifted an Elton John CD to Kim Jong-un amid denuclearisation talks, in a joking reference to earlier feuds between the two leaders in which the US president branded the dictator as a "little rocket man".

The CD, which includes Elton John’s hit single Rocket Man, will be presented by US secretary of state Mike Pompeo to Kim along with a letter written by Trump, according to reports from South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo.
