The president considered the previous nickname of ‘rocket man’ to be too much of a compliment.
President Trump has decided to add the word “little” to the beginning of his nickname for Kim Jong-un, according to a Washington Post report.
Trump had previously only called the North Korean dictator, “rocket man,” after the Elton John song, but a response from Kim prompted the president to make the nickname more insulting:
Although Trump called Kim “Rocket Man” in his first address to the United Nations, he thought it was not an insult and could even be seen as a compliment, Trump said at the dinner, according to attendees. But after Kim issued a statement calling Trump a “dotard,” Trump upped the ante.
“So I said, all right, so now I’ll call him Little Rocket Man,” Trump said.
No matter your opinion on Trump, the president has been the king of nicknames, gifting America with classics like “Little Marco,” “Lyin’ Ted,” and “Crooked Hillary.”
This isn’t the first insult that Trump has modified either. In February, he changed his label of “fake news” for CNN to “very fake news.”
