Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un seem like a good match. But the two world leaders don't hold back when it comes to their hate for one another.

Trump's tweets about Kim Jong-Un and North Korea could get the U.S. in big trouble. The U.S. president mocked Kim Jong-Un after North Korea launched a "ballistic missile" into the sea off the East Coast before he attended the G20 summit.

Trump was quick to react to the news on Twitter, as usual. He tweeted, "does this guy have anything better to do with his life?" He then added, "….and Japan will put up with this much longer. Perhaps China will put a heavy move on North Korea and end this nonsense once and for all!"

The missile was launched around 9:10 a.m. local time from Panghyon, about 100 km (600 miles) northwest of North Korea's capital, Pyongyang, according to The Sun. The missile flew for 40 minutes and landed in Japan's Economic Zone (EEZ), the Japanese government confirmed.

Trump's tweets came before the U.S., China, Japan, and South Korea were talk about their efforts in North Korea's nuclear and missile tests ahead of the G20 summit on July 7 to 8. Pyongyang has been working on a nuclear-tipped missile that is likely to hit the U.S. Earlier this week, North Korea has been making phone calls with President Trump and the leaders of China and Japan. However, Trump's tweets could get U.S. in trouble with the Asian countries.

The missile launch came before the Fourth of July celebrations in the U.S. North Korea has previously fired missiles around the U.S. holiday. In June, North Korea carried out another rocket test, which was part of its development to create a ballistic missile. Trump has said that a "major, major conflict" with North Korea over its missiles and weapons rather than its military force is the preferable option.

This could cause the U.S. trouble. The head of the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency told Congress last month that North Korea was "inevitable" on the path to create a nuclear-armed missile that would hit the U.S. Still, it could be years before it happens. The U.S. is about 5,600 miles (9,000 km) from North Korea. Any intentions to resolve North Korea's military defense would be "tragic on an unbelievable scale," Trump's defense secretary, Jim Mattis, said last month.

So the U.S. wants to defer North Korea's nuclear weapons instead. The U.S. government is creating its first-ever incoming ICBM-type missile, according to a report back in May. The president has been getting in trouble with plenty of people. His tweet about Kim Jong-Un comes after his "body-slamming" of CNN and his recent Twitter feuds with Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, hosts of MSBNC's Morning Joe politics show.

Trump has also been criticized for his constant weekend trips to Mar-a-Lago, his country club in Palm Beach, Florida. He decided to entertain Japanese prime minister, Shinzo Abe, there instead of the Oval Office. That happened when North Korea launched a missile in February. If Trump continues this tirade on Twitter, then the U.S. could get themselves in trouble with North Korea or other countries.
