“North Korea fired off some small weapons, which disturbed some of my people, and others, but not me,” Trump wrote. “I have confidence that Chairman Kim will keep his promise to me.”

Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa, who sits on the Senate Armed Services Committee, is among those with a different outlook.

“I find them very disturbing and certainly wouldn’t trust Kim Jong Un,” she said of the recent testing. “I think we need to keep our eyes on North Korea. I understand the president wants to maintain a relationship … so that we can work with them, however those strikes are disturbing.”
