Previously, the White House said Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in discussed North Korea’s recent intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) launches during a call on Saturday. “The two leaders noted that North Korea continues to defy the international community, even after the United Nations strongly condemned North Korea’s repeated provocations twice in the past week,” the White House said in a statement.

“President Trump and President Moon committed to continuing to take steps to strengthen deterrence and defense capabilities and to maximize economic and diplomatic pressure on North Korea. The two leaders noted that they will continue their close consultations next week when they meet on the margins of the United Nations General Assembly.”

According to Reuters, a South Korean official said the leaders agreed on the need for stronger sanctions against North Korea during their call.

“The two leaders agreed to strengthen cooperation, and exert stronger and practical sanctions on North Korea so that it realizes provocative actions leads to further diplomatic isolation and economic pressure,” Blue House spokesman Park Soo-hyun said in a televised briefing.

In addition to the “Rocket Man” tweet, Trump also tweeted that “Attorney General Bill Schuette will be a fantastic Governor for the great State of Michigan. I am bringing back your jobs and Bill will help”, he thanked a supporter on twitter…

…who said “Only true Americans can see that president Trump is making America great. He’s the only person who can! Haters are jealous of his success”…

… he also retweeted some commentary critical of the NYT:

… before going full bore in retweeting one particular account, @TeamTrump45, which took certain creative liberties in highlighting his support for the president:

Trump then also retweeted the following tweet showing his “amazing golf swing in action” which sent a golf ball right into the back of #CrookedHillary …

… before retweeting his Friday tweets following the latest London terrorist attack that “The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!” and “Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner.The internet is their main recruitment tool which we must cut off & use better!”

Trump concluded by saying that “Important meetings and calls scheduled for today. Military and economy are getting stronger by the day, and our enemies know it.”
