"Their words and actions continue to be very hostile and unsafe to the United States", Trump tweeted.
In short, the hydrogen bomb is a completely different and altogether more frightening prospect and it would put North Korea into an exclusive club of only five other countries: the US, UK, China, France and Russian Federation.
It has always been accepted that North Korea has intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) capable of reaching the mainland of the United States.
U.S. President Donald Trump had earlier announced that he was going to meet with the national security team over what he described as a "great threat" in a tweet.
German chancellor Angela Merkel also joined in the condemnation when her office issued a statement which read thus; "The chancellor and the president are in agreement that North Korea has trampled on global law and that the worldwide community must therefore react with determination against this new escalation".
The EU said it would also consider tougher sanctions and South Korea vowed to push for the most powerful sanctions yet at the UN Security Council, which is to discuss the test on Monday.
South Korea's presidential office also said Eui-yong spoke with U.S. counterpart H.R. McMaster for 20 minutes in an emergency phone call about an hour after the detonation.

Mattis continued to address the aggression displayed by North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, saying that he should "take heed" of the UN's Security Council's unanimous position against North Korea's nuclear program.
Kazianis said Kim claimed to have tested a hydrogen bomb previous year, but most experts were dismissive, arguing instead the North might have had a more powerful atomic bomb.
The Trump administration warned Sunday of a "massive military response" against North Korea and President Trump threatened to halt trade with China after Pyongyang conducted an alarmingly powerful nuclear test.
"A successful test means they can build a weapon, not that they have any ready for immediate use", said Carl Schuster, a former director of operations at the US Pacific Command's Joint Intelligence Center. "China's government expresses resolute opposition and strong condemnation toward this", the Chinese foreign ministry said in a statement on its website.
Trump's threat to halt all economic ties with any country that does business with North Korea amounts to his biggest trade salvo to date and would be almost impossible to pull off without having enormous implications for the US economy.
South Korea's meteorological agency called it a "man-made" natural disaster.
The leader chose not to address the test during his more than 40-minute address to the assembled leaders of Russia, India, South Africa and Brazil.
Pyongyang claimed on Saturday that it had successfully tested a hydrogen bomb.
