(Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said in a Twitter message 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.
“Perhaps China will put a heavy move on North Korea and end this nonsense once and for all,” Trump said on Twitter.
The White House had no immediate official comment on reports of North Korea launching a missile.
