North Korea tested a missile over the weekend. The Trump admin flubbed the response.
North Korea tested a missile to test the Trump administration over the weekend — and it’s unclear if America’s leaders passed.

It significantly undercut what President Donald Trump considered his greatest accomplishment in months-long talks with North Korea: the end of weapons tests. While it was only a short-range missile that couldn’t reach the United States, it shows that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s patience with negotiations may be wearing thin.
