Following what appears to have been a test of a hydrogen bomb by North Korea, President Donald Trump on Sunday called North Korea a "grave threat" and said the United States is looking at halting trade with any country doing business with the country.

In addition to the warning via a tweet on trade:
Trump also reported he was meeting with his generals concerning North Korea:

On "Fox News Sunday," Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchinsaid North Korea's latest nuclear test is "unacceptable."

"It's clear that this behavior is completely unacceptable," Mnuchin said.

"We've already started with sanctions against North Korea but I am going to draft a sanctions package to send to the president for his strong consideration."

Mnuchin said North Korea needs to be cut off economically.

"People need to cut off North Korea economically, this is unacceptable behavior," he said.

Mnuchin reiterated that if other countries want to do business with the U.S., they "obviously will be working with our allies and others to cut off North Korea economically."

    Actually, never mind. Don't want to give Trump any ideas...
