Mar-a-Lago Member Posts Photos of Trump Reacting to NK Missile Launch
A member of President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago club posted several photos to his now-deleted Facebook account of the president and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe apparently reacting to a North Korean missile launch over the weekend.
"It was fascinating to watch the flurry of activity at dinner when the news came that North Korea had launched a missile in the direction of Japan," Richard DeAgazio, of Massachusetts, wrote Saturday.
DeAgazio told the Washington Post that he was eating dinner on the Palm Beach, Fla. club's terrace when Trump and Abe came in and were seated.

Later, after learning of the missile launch, DeAgazio looked over at the president and prime minister's table and watched the two leaders react to the news, as aides surrounded them and documents were scoured by flashlight.
DeAgazio said the fact Trump temporarily remained on the club's terrace and did not give an obvious "panicked" look when the news broke showed that he is a "man of the people," as the president often says.
"I thought he handled it very calmly, and very presidentially," he said.

DeAgazio received further attention for posting a picture with "Rick", a young man he identified as the person tasked with carrying around the "nuclear football", a briefcase containing weapon codes and other sensitive information.
