Trump has a new nickname for Kim Jong Un

President Trump seems to have a new nickname for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. In a series of Sunday morning Twitter musings that also included an estimate of his Twitter worth, and a video edited to make it look like he was hitting Hillary Clinton with a golf ball, Trump referred to Kim as "Rocket Man".

North Korea has been defiantly launching a series of missiles, and recently tested what was believed to have been a hydrogen bomb. Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in will meet this week at the U.N. General Assembly to further discuss ways to approach North Korea's growing nuclear threat.

Trump, of course, is known for giving his adversaries nicknames. "I feel it, it's an instinct," he once told The New York Times Magazine. Let's see, there was Little Marco, Lyin' Ted, Crazy Bernie. And who could forget Crooked Hillary? It was only fitting that Kim get one, too. No word, though, on how Elton John feels about the moniker. Jessica Hullinger
