President Donald Trump didn’t hold back when he tore into North Korea on Monday for launching their ninth ballistic missile.
For months, North Korea has been testing Trump by frequently testing missiles and threatening the safety of the Western world.
“North Korea has shown great disrespect for their neighbor, China, by shooting off yet another ballistic missile,” the president tweeted. “But China is trying hard!”

“The situation on the Korean peninsula is complex and sensitive,” the country’s ministry said in a statement.
“And we hope all relevant sides maintain calm and exercise restraint, ease the tense situation as soon as possible and put the issue back onto the correct track of peaceful dialogue.”
Most westernized Asian countries, like South Korea and Japan, have voiced their support for Trump and his hard line stance against North Korea.
