President Donald Trump issued an extraordinary tweet from Japan on Saturday, prior to golfing with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe.

In the tweet, Trump admitted ignoring the concerns of his own advisors on North Korea.

“North Korea fired off some small weapons, which disturbed some of my people, and others, but not me,” Trump wrote.

The president said, “I have confidence that Chairman Kim will keep his promise to me.”
