The mystery was resolved Tuesday when the official news agency KCNA put out no fewer than four reports on his trip to far-flung Samjiyon county, on the border with China, majority far more detailed than its usual accounts of his "field guidance" visits.
According to a South Korean newspaper, Chosun Ilbo, Trump's decision to give Kim the CD comes after a conversation the two leaders had over lunch during their summit in June.
Mount said Trump's reaction would be a concern.
"President Trump and Chairman Kim made a commitment to recover the remains of U.S. service members in North Korea as well as to repatriate remains that they now have", stated Kelly McKeague, Director of U.S. Defense of POW/MIA Accounting Agency. Kim Jong-un vowed to push forward with the "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula" in a statement signed alongside President Trump, but never clarified what that statement meant.
On Weibo, China's twitter-like microblogging platform, one user asked "why is the U.S. - a country so far away - keeping an eye on the North Korea's denuclearization progress?"
Organisers have also sought to invite several North Korean moviemakers but are waiting for official approval.
Accusations from USA politicians, however, have triggered nationalistic sentiment among Chinese netizens.
"Kim has played Trump like a Stradivarius".
While China may be genuinely committed to pushing Pyongyang to denuclearize, it'll inevitably bear the brunt of any back-and-forth from North Korea's delivery, according to Tsai Tung-Chieh, a professor of global politics at National Chung Hsing University in Taichung, central Taiwan.
The US secretary of state visited Pyongyang on Friday and Saturday in an attempt to agree details of a deal made during June's historic summit between Donald Trump and the North Korean dictator.
"If those requests were "gangster-like" then the world is a gangster, because there was a unanimous decision at the U.N. Security Council about what needs to be achieved", Pompeo told reporters in Tokyo, his next stop after Pyongyang.
The latter - a joint production between Britain, Belgium and the North - was earlier screened at the Toronto International Film Festival and the South's Busan International Film Festival to positive reviews.
This morning, Trump was asked if the "Rocket Man" report was true.
