WASHINGTON D.C. — After North Korean leader Kim Jung Un launched another ballistic missile test Monday, President Trump reacted on Twitter by calling on China to intervene.

"Perhaps China will put a heavy move on North Korea and end this nonsense once and for all!" Trump wrote.

North Korea said Tuesday it had finally conducted a successful launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile, which flew for about 40 minutes on a trajectory more than 1,700 miles into the atmosphere and landed some 500 miles east in the Sea of Japan, according to The Los Angeles Times. In theory, such a range means it could have reached Alaska.

Aside from the president's tweets, the White House has not publicly commented on North Korea's missile launch, a separate report by the Times said. Trump spent part of the Independence Day holiday at his golf course in Virginia.

Some lawmakers expressed dissatisfaction with Trump's response to North Korea's missile launch.

"Instead of vague Twitter bluster, President Trump should answer North Korea's dangerous test with a coherent strategy of direct diplomacy with Pyongyang and increased economic sanctions pressure from China," said Sen. Edward Markey (D-Mass.), in a statement.

Republican Sen. Deb Fischer of Nebraska said that while more pressure should be exerted on Russia and China to take steps against Pyongyang, there should be "no illusions that they will solve this problem for us."

China and Russia condemned the missile launch as "unacceptable" and called for suspension of all North Korea's missile and nuclear tests.
