U.S. President Donald Trump and his national security adviser are publicly at odds about the seriousness of the threat currently posed by North Korea.
In a Sunday morning tweet from Tokyo, Trump issued a retort to John Bolton who the previous day here had told reporters that there was “no doubt” North Korea’s recent test firing of short-range ballistic missiles violated a United Nations resolution.
Bolton’s remark was the first by a U.S. official describing the North Korean launches as a violation of U.N. resolutions.
“North Korea fired off some small weapons which disturbed some of my people and others, but not me,” said Trump in his tweet.
The U.S. president also expressed confidence the North Korean leader “will keep his promise to me” in moving toward denuclearization.
