President Donald Trump sided with North Korea in its recent personal attacks on Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, saying he "smiled" when Kim Jong Un called the former vice president a "low IQ individual."
Trump, in a post on Twitter, asked if North Korea's recent criticism of Biden was a signal to him.
The president also appeared to contradict his national security advisor, John Bolton, who said North Korea's recent missile launches violated U.N. Security Council resolutions.
Trump dismissed the recent launches as "some small weapons" and said that while some of his people were disturbed by North Korea's recent actions, he was not.
"I have confidence that Chairman Kim will keep his promise to me," Trump said.
