The New York Post was quick to seize on news of a possible meeting between President TrumpDonald John TrumpLieu: There will be 'widespread civil unrest' if Trump fires Mueller Attorneys for Trump, Mueller hold face-to-face meeting to discuss potential interview topics: report Trump tariffs not helpful for nuclear talks, South Korea says MORE and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, releasing a photo of its Friday cover that pokes at the two leaders. 

Trump's hometown newspaper dubbed the meeting "The Kim and I," after the classic musical adaptation "The King and I," telling the story of a tumultuous relationship between the King of Siam and a schoolteacher hired to help modernize the country.

The Post's Friday cover comes as Trump says his administration is planning a meeting with the North Korean leader in an effort to see it abandon its nuclear ambitions.

South Korean's national security adviser announced Thursday at the White House that Trump agreed to an invitation from Kim to meet by May.

The Post also cited Trump's reference to Kim as "little rocket man," a derisive nickname first used in a speech before the United Nations General Assembly last year as the president demanded tougher sanctions on North Korea.

The meeting will mark the first between Trump and Kim, and comes just weeks after the first bilateral talks between the two Koreas in over a decade. 

South Korean officials said Trump accepted the meeting "to achieve permanent denuclearization."
