Trump to convene security team to discuss North Korea's hydrogen bomb test

TRUMP TO CONVENE SECURITY TEAM TO DISCUSS NORTH KOREAS HYDROGEN BOMB TEST

US President Donald Trump will convene his national security team Sunday, the White House said, after North Korea tested-fired what it claimed was a hydrogen bomb that it can mount on a missile.

The White House says President Donald Trump and his national security team plan a meeting later Sunday to discuss North Korea, in the wake of the North's announcement that it has conducted its most powerful nuclear test to date.

The White House says the president's team is "monitoring this closely."

"The national security team is monitoring this closely," said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

"The President and his national security team will have a meeting to discuss further later today. We will provide updates as necessary."

Trump has reacted to the test by calling North Korea "a rogue nation" whose "words and actions continue to be very hostile and dangerous to the United States."
