Donald Trump has said he is "very, very disappointed" to hear that North Korea is rebuilding a missile site that Pyongyang has said will be closed amid ongoing denuclearisation negotiations.

Earlier, the president lashed out at a number of old enemies on Twitter, including Hillary Clinton, showing his growing frustration with House Democrats and the investigations surrounding him.

In those tweets, the president accused the Democrats of “playing games” by instigating “McCarthyite” congressional investigations against him rather than getting on with the business of government, refusing to hand over files related to his son-in-law Jared Kushner’s security clearance to the House Oversight Committee and indicating he might not co-operate with the House Judiciary Committee’s abuse of power investigation into his inner circle.

As the investigations into Mr Trump have swirled, a damning new poll has emerged suggesting two-thirds of American voters believe he committed a crime before his election.

On Tuesday, Mr Trump also walked back his decision to pull all US troops out of Syria, saying he now agreed “100 per cent” with keeping a military presence there.

Meanwhile, the president’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, will return to Capitol Hill for a fourth day of testimony.
