President Trump and Prime Minister Abe appeared at a hastily called joint press conference regarding reports of a missile launched by North Korea, the first since Trump took office.

The press assembled in an ornate room in Mar-a-Lago, where Abe has been visiting this weekend. Flags from the United States and Japan were set up behind them.

Abe called the launch "absolutely intolerable" and said Trump had assured him the United States would always be with Japan "100 percent."

Trump's full statement:

"I just want everybody to understand and fully know that

the United States of America stands behind Japan, it's great ally, 100 percent."
