Trump convenes Nat Sec meeting, says "we'll see" about North Korea attack

President Trump said "we'll see" in response to a reporter's question about whether he'll attack North Korea. Trump is meeting with Defense Secretary James Mattis, Chief of Staff John Kelly and others today to discuss next steps with North Korea.
