President Trump consulted with chief of staff John Kelly and other national security aides before warning North Korea of "fire and fury” if Pyongyang continues its nuclear threats, the White House said Wednesday.

“The president and chief of staff Kelly are and have been in constant contact with members of the [National Security Council] team,” White House deputy press secretary Lindsay Walters told reporters.

Walters also said national security adviser H.R. McMaster will travel to meet with the president later this week. Vice President Pence, whose visit was previously announced, is arriving Thursday.
