Trump, the master at diplomacy, responded to the launch with a tweet.
“North Korea disrespected the wishes of China & its highly respected President when it launched, though unsuccessfully, a missile today. Bad!”
This was the 75th missile test by North Korea under Kim Jong Un’s watch since 2011 and at least the eighth since Trump’s inauguration in January.
Trump, who told Reuters in an interview earlier that there was a chance the US “could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea.”
Imagine the absurdity of the President of the United States resorting to social media to address any foreign policy matter. I’m sure that Kim Jong-un considers himself appropriately reprimanded by having Trump tell him that his actions were “BAD”.
