President Trump on Sunday dismissed the idea he was concerned about North Korea's recent ballistic weapons tests. In an early morning tweet from Tokyo, Trump wrote that he was not disturbed by the weapons testing, although others in his administration were. Trump said he has confidence North Korean leader Kim Jong Un "will keep his promise," referring to a reported agreement between the two heads of state in which Kim said North Korea would not test intercontinental-range ballistic missiles. Trump also cited Kim's recent criticism of former Vice President Joe Biden, who could face off with Trump in the 2020 presidential election, as further reason to trust him.
