WASHINGTON — 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. Pompeo didn't get to meet with Kim.

Trump signed a copy of the British singer's "Honky Chateau" album, which includes his hit song "Rocket Man," for Pompeo to give to Kim on his trip. Previously, Trump had derided Kim as "Little Rocket Man" over his nuclear claims.

Trump told reporters Tuesday he still has the CD and "it will be given" at another time.

Pompeo's visit was meant to negotiate the details of Trump's nuclear agreement with Kim. North Korea later criticized Pompeo's "gangster-like" demands in negotiations.
