The phone call request, which was reported by the White House press pool, comes one day after the United Nations Security Council voted unanimously to increase sanctions on North Korea in the wake of the nation's recent intercontinental ballistic missile tests.  

Trump is on the second day of his extended stay at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J.

The president left Washington on Friday to spend 17 days at his golf club, on what he has called a working vacation.
