A FAIRWAY FROM NORTH KOREA

A photo of the US President shows him posing for photos with a group of lads at the club house

DONALD Trump has been pictured relaxing at his Palm Beach golf course AGAIN this weekend despite tensions with North Korea hitting a nerve-wracking new high.

A photo of the US President posted on Instagram shows him posing for shots with a group of lads at the golf course club house.

The 70-year-old looks relaxed as he offers a big grin while wearing a white polo shirt and a Make America Great Again hat.

The person who posted the image captioned it: “Saturday is still in fact for the boys”.

It comes just hours after North Korea performed a failed missile test – despite warnings from the international community.

South Korea’s military reported the attempt near the Sinpo region, the same area from which the North tested a ballistic missile last month.

US officials said the missile in today’s test exploded on launch but they don’t know exactly what type of weapon it was.

Trump has come under criticism for both the amount of time he has spent playing golf since becoming president, and his regular visits to his Mar-a-Lago resort.

As a candidate, Trump often railed against former President Barack Obama for his frequent golfing, claiming Obama played more often than players on the PGA Tour.

He said if he won he’d likely be too busy to golf and would only play with people he was looking to make deals with.

North Korea has tested several missiles recently.

They launched a long-range rocket and conducted two nuclear tests last year, including its most powerful to date, as well as carrying out a slew of shorter range missile firings.

A smirking Kim Jong-Un watched a fervent military parade just hours after telling America: “We’re ready for war.”

Chief among the devastating arsenal on show during the parade was a KN-08 rocket, thought to be capable of flying more than 7,000miles – within range of Los Angeles, New York and Washington DC.

US military experts reacted with shock to the display, as one admitted “we’re floored right now”.

Shell-shocked North Korean experts admit the secretive nation now appears far more advanced than previously thought.
