Trump tweets about North Korea's 'Rocket Man'

Written by Lisa

President Donald Trump began Sunday with a tweet Sunday taking a dig at North Korea’s leader, referring to him as “Rocket Man.”

“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!,” the president tweet.

Trump’s was referring to Moon Jae-in, current leader of South Korea, and Kim Jong Un, the North Korean strongman who has been pursuing the ability to launch missiles at any and all enemies. Presumably the “Rocket Man” reference was to the Elton John song from 1972.

The president also re-tweeted a tweet taking aim at the New York Times and sent a note of thanks to someone named Lana Del Fenty for tweeting “we love and support Trump!” — and she responded in kind with thanks and surprise (“My phone can’t handle all of this omg”). It’s not clear why the president singled her out for praise.

Returning to a familiar foil, Trump later retweeted a meme depicting his golf swing knocking former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton down as she tries to board a plane. Trump has steeped up his criticism of Clinton since the release of her campaign memoir, “What Happened.”

The president also retweeted a handful of other memes, including a map depicting him winning every single state in 2020.
