WASHINGTON (Reuters) - US President Donald Trump said North Korea showed disrespect to its major ally China after it fired a short-range ballistic missile on Monday (May 29) that landed in the sea off its east coast.

"North Korea has shown great disrespect for their neighbour, China, by shooting off yet another ballistic missile... but China is trying hard!" Trump said in a post on Twitter.
