ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday (April 5) called North Korea a "big problem" that should have been handled years ago. "We have somebody that is not doing the right thing and that's going to be my responsibility," Trump said during a news conference with Jordan's King Abdullah at the White House. Trump's comments come after North Korea test-fired a ballistic missile into the sea off its east coast on Wednesday. The missile flew about 60 km (40 miles) from its launch site at Sinpo, a port city on North Korea's east coast, the South Korean Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement. Sinpo is home to a North Korean submarine base. The launch comes just a day before the start of a summit between President Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping, where talks about adding pressure on the North to drop its arms development will take center stage.
