In Tweet, Trump Praises Kim Jong Un After NK Has Successful Missile Launch
Contradicting the concerns of his own national security adviser, President Donald Trump praised North Korea’s successful missile launch tests in a tweet on Sunday:
“North Korea fired off some small weapons, which disturbed some of my people, and others, but not me. I have confidence that Chairman Kim will keep his promise to me, & also smiled when he called Swampman Joe Biden a low IQ individual, & worse. Perhaps that’s sending me a signal?”
According to Time, “some” of Trump’s “people” who are concerned about North Korea’s “small weapons” include national security adviser John Bolton, who stated on Saturday that North Korea’s short-range missile launches violated U.N. Security Council mandates.
“There is no doubt about that,” Bolton said.
