U.S. President Donald Trump on Sunday criticized North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, saying he was "acting very, very badly."

Trump made the comments to reporters while departing his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, where he spent the weekend. Trump said administration officials had meetings during the weekend about North Korea, among other issues. 

North Korea said Saturday it tested a new high-thrust rocket engine and Kim Jong Un afterwards told a North Korean-controlled news agency that the "whole world will soon witness what eventful significance the great victory won today carries."

North Korea has tested several missiles over the last year, and in early January said that his country was close to testing an intercontinental ballistic missile, putting the U.S. on edge and eliciting a warning tweet from Trump.

The UN has placed sanctions on North Korea over nuclear and ballistic missile testing, most recently imposing a cap on coal exports, but that hasn’t stopped Kim as his country’s nuclear capabilities have sharply increased.
