The US is considering stopping "all trade" with any country doing business with North Korea, US President has said in a tweet.

The US President's threat on Sunday came after North Korea's official media has announced that the country had successfully detonated a hydrogen bomb capable of being carried by an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), Xinhua news agency reported.

In an earlier tweet, Trump called the words and actions of North Korea "very hostile and dangerous" to the US.

Trump also said he will be meeting with White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, Secretary of Defense James Mattis and other military leaders at the White House to discuss the North Korea issue.
