The Chinese state news agency attacked President Trump's "emotional venting" following his tweets disapproving of China's lack of response to a North Korean missile launch.

"Trump is quite a personality, and he likes to tweet," Xinhua, the official news agency of China, said in an editorial according to the New York Times. "But emotional venting cannot become a guiding policy for solving the nuclear issue on the peninsula."

Last week, North Korea launched an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of striking the United States with a nuclear payload. It is the country's second recent test of an ICBM further heightening tensions between the U.S. and North Korea.

"I am very disappointed in China. Our foolish past leaders have allowed them to make hundreds of billions of dollars a year in trade, yet they do NOTHING for us with North Korea, just talk," Trump said in a series of tweets on Saturday. "We will no longer allow this to continue. China could easily solve this problem!"

President Trump has called out China multiple times since becoming commander in chief for not doing more to help the United States with the rogue state. China has supported North Korea in the past by not fully implementing United Nations sanctions against the country.

The U.S. "must not continue spurning responsibility" in North Korea, "and even less should it stab China in the back," the Chinese news agency added according to the report.

On Thursday, Trump sanctioned a Chinese bank financing companies involved with the North Korean missile program.
