6:32 pm
claiming the north had successfully tested a miniaturized hydrogen bomb to protect, she said, from warmongers like the united states. a hyhrogen bomb is 1,000 times more powerful than the atomic bombs which destroyed hiroshima and nagasaki in world war ii. >> you don't want north korea anywhere near that kind of technology. >> reporter: for hours after the underground test, which caused a significant seismic shock, the world waited nervously. nuclear sffer aircraft was sent to the region from the u.s., south korea was on high alert and ambassador caroline kennedy was reassuring the japanese. but finally today, after analyzing the shockwaves, the white house calmed fears. >> the initial analysis is not consistent with the claims that the regime has made of a successful here droe jen bomb test. >> reporter: but this was still north korea's fourth nuclear test since 2006, and the north has the means to deliver those

6:40 pm
leading in iowa, and we were one-on-one with him on his campaign bus, asking about trump. now he's talking about, you know, that you were born in canada, not criticizing it, but saying you could have problems with that. why do you think he's doing that? >> oh, look. i'm not going to try to psycho analyze donald trump. my view, if -- >> reporter: he sees you as a threat? >>ou'd somewhere to ask him that. >> reporter: cruz is trying his best to ignore trump's attacks. the fiery texas senator energizing iowa republicans and his conservative base. we were there when a woman broke down in tears, just talking to him. but some republicans worry cruz is too polarizing, too unwilling to compromise with congress to win in a general elececon. how can you be a president and hate the democrats and hate the culte of washington so much and be effective? >> i don't hate the democrats. it's hillary clinton who describes her, quote, enemies, as republicans, as half of the country she considers her enemies. i don't hate the democrats. >> and now tom llamas off the bus tonight, and live with us
6:41 pm
suggesting that cruz go to court to clear up this issue of citizenship? >> reporter: that's right, david. trump now saying, a judge could put this whole issue to bed. but senator ted cruz is not taking the bait. he just got off his bus and i asked him again for a second time, but he says, this issue is settled. if he's elected, he can become president. david? >> tom llamas with us tonight after his one-on-one with ted cruz. tom, thank you. now, to a battle erupting tonight over same-sex marriage. roy moore is ordering judges in his state not to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. that's in defiance of the supreme court's ruling late last year. and from texas tonight, a controversial police case suddenly back in the news this evening. sandra bland, pulled over, ler dying in her jail cell. this evening, the state trooper who arrested bland after that traffic stop last july is now charged with perjury. accused of lying about how she was removed from the car.
