WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday he does not consider North Korea's recent launch of short-range ballistic missiles "a breach of trust."

In an interview with Politico, Trump downplayed the missile tests by North Korea, calling them "very standard stuff."

"They're short-range and I don’t consider that a breach of trust at all. And, you know, at some point I may. But at this point no," Trump told Politico.
