Trump used the term to describe the pariah state’s current dictator Kim Jong Un during his address to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday.

“Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime,” said Trump. “The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.”

He also tweeted the moniker over the weekend:

The cover of The Economist’s July 8, 2006 edition showed Kim Jong Il, who died in 2011, blasting off into the sky above the -, “Rocket man.”

Twitter users called out Trump for the duplication:
