WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump will convene a high-level meeting on election security this week with top security officials on the White House’s National Security Council, a source familiar with the plan told Reuters.

Trump’s national security adviser, John Bolton, also plans to hold a separate meeting this week focused on Iran, two sources with knowledge of the meeting said.

Politico, which first reported the planned meetings, said Bolton planned to hold a North Korea-related meeting this week as well.
