U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday said it was “hard to believe South Korea and Japan will put up with this much longer”, hours after North Korea launched on Tuesday its latest ballistic missile.

Trump tweeted: “North Korea has just launched another missile. Does this guy have anything better to do with his life? Hard to believe that South Korea and Japan will put up with this much longer. Perhaps China will put a heavy move on North Korea and end this nonsense once and for all!” The single launch of a land-based, intermediate range ballistic missile occurred near the Panghyon Airfield, the US Pacific Command said. “The President has been briefed on the latest report of a North Korean ballistic missile launch,” according to the White House.

According to United States Pacific Command (USPACOM), the missile was tracked for 37 minutes and landed in the Sea of Japan. “We are working with our interagency partners on a more detailed assessment. We continue to monitor North Korea’s actions closely,” the PACOM said. According to officials in Seoul and Tokyo, too, North Korea launched the ballistic missile that landed in waters near Japan.

South Korea’s military also confirmed that North Korea had fired an “unidentified ballistic missile” into the Sea of Japan from Banghyon in North Pyongan, a province near its border with China, the Guardian reported.

    Mr. Trump a few days earlier it was you who talked about meeting that "kid".Yes you are right.“Does this guy have anything better to do with his life?” No.If he had then people of his regime(including 60 yrs of Kims)would have been in a better shape.Time has come that America intervenes and flushes this menace out once for all.

    an and S Korea are doing their bit. But expecting china to rein in N Korea is the most foolish expectation one can have. N Korea has active support of china and well supplied with missiles and nuclear weapons by china. Why china will rein in N Korea when N Korea is taking forward agenda of china.

    Why this rogue super power is begging others to do his dirty job? Why doesnt it go and attack North Korea like it is habitually doing in the middle east and afghanistan?? Is it afraid of NK's nukes??? or just gesturing for public consumption.
