South Korea's Chosun Ilbo newspaper reports that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who is in Pyongyang for a meeting with Kim, is bringing a letter from Trump and the CD. The U.S. delegation was left waiting around for Kim Yong Chol to arrive, and there weren't enough seats at the table for the U.S. negotiators. The first time Trump called Kim "Rocket Man" was during an address to the UN General Assembly on September 19, 2017, when he warned against North Korea's pursuit of nuclear weapons. The CD has a message written on it by Trump, along with his signature, the news agency said.
While, in the past, the Pentagon has said North Korean officials have indicated they had the remains of as many as 200 US troops, a USA military official familiar with the procedures for handling remains said it was not clear what North Korea might hand over.
Secretary Pompeo will depart Pyongyang Saturday morning for Tokyo, where he is expected to meet with South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha and Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono to discuss the outcomes of his talks in North Korea.
Pompeo would not confirm the CD gift to US reporters embedded with him.

Pompeo arrived at Pyongyang's Sunan Airport on Friday afternoon, where Kim and other officials, including Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho, Kim Chang Son, a senior official at the State Affairs Commission, and others were at the tarmac, ready to greet him and the USA delegation, South Korean news service EDaily reported.
A statement from the Secretary of State released before his arrival in the DPRK capital said the visit would see him "fill in some details" on the commitments outlined in the June 12 agreement and "continue the momentum towards implementation".

Trump urges Tester's ouster at rally for Montana Republican
During the speech, the President slammed reporters and commentators for questioning whether he was preparing for the meeting. But overall, organizers say things have gone peacefully here today, and they're relatively happy with how it all went down.
There is also speculation Pompeo could meet with Kim. It used to talk publicly about "complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization (CVID)", jargon which Pyongyang apparently loathes. In recent days, the State Department has shifted to using the phrase "final, fully verified denuclearization", including in a Pompeo tweet Thursday.
Some U.S. officials and experts have said the change in language amounted to a softening in approach.
A spokesman for South Korea's presidential office would only say South Korea and the United States were working to formulate "constructive measures" on North Korea's denuclearization.
