After the news broke that North Korea fired off yet another ballistic missile, all eyes then shifted to how Donald Trump would response. In typical fashion, the president gave his thoughts on social media.

Global reaction

During the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump was quick to hit back a various world leaders, with the lone exception being Vladimir Putin of Russia. When it came to North Korea and Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un, the former host of "The Apprentice" was also careful in how he reacted. Trump never fully condemned the controversial leader, and often made comments that left many scratching their heads, like praising Kim for killing members of his own family.

Over the last month, tensions have increased between the United States and several foreign countries due to Trump's recent actions. Earlier this month, Trump ordered nearly 60 tomahawk cruise missiles to strike an airbase in Syria after Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons on his own people. Just a week later and the Commander In Chief dropped the "Mother Of All Bombs" on a tunnel in Afghanistan that was being used by the Islamic State (ISIS). Since then, North Korea has used the United States' recent military actions as an excuse to continue their weapons program, which as CNN reported, took the next step on Friday. As seen on his Twitter account on April 28, Trump was pleased with the results.

According to CNN, North Korea launched a ballistic missile, but it failed to exit the country's own territory. Reports out of South Korea also confirmed that the test was yet another failure of the North Korean military.

Trump's response

Once North Korea's missile launch was deemed unsuccessful, Donald Trump took to Twitter to voice his opinion, and troll the country in the process. "North Korea disrespected the wishes of China & its highly respected President when it launched, though unsuccessfully, a missile today," Trump wrote on Twitter, before adding, "Bad!" As part of another sign that he is softening his stance on China, Trump offered high praise to Chinese President Xi Jinping, despite critics citing his previous campaign rhetoric against him.

Twitter reaction

In response to Donald Trump's tweet, social media users didn't hold back their thoughts and quickly responded to the commander in chief. "They're not going to stop because you said they've been bad on Twitter," writer Mark Pygas tweeted out.

"Wait a second, Sir - aren't you the same guy who blamed China for pranking us on global warming?" author Joe Papp added. "Oh, Donald. That's exactly how a 6-year old would explain it. Remember, even when you're mad and in over your head, to sound Presidenty," TV writer Bess Kalb tweeted out.
