Keith Ellison Says Kim Jong Un 'Acting More Responsible' Than Trump

  • US citizens in North Korea DOOMED if Kim and Trump continue on nuke warpath

"You have this guy making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there", Ellison, who also serves as the Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee, said.

He said: "It's incredibly worrying the way in which Donald Trump has upped the ante as it were and I think what we need now is statesmanship, not brinkmanship".

Late Thursday night Trump doubled down on his dramatic warning of "fire and fury" if North Korea continued to threaten the US, as he scrambled to resolve the most serious worldwide confrontation of his young presidency.

As the insanity increases and the threats between the USA and North Korea escalate, might I make a suggestion.

"The President has to act like the President of the United States, when you hear words come out of his mouth it seems like they could come out of the mouth of Kim Jong Un", he continued.

He went on to urge the crowd that if they "don't want to get caught, deer-in-the-headlights", when missiles start flying that they should "call in North Korea immediately". "It's tailor-made for somebody to misuse".

Mapped: US and Allied Missile Defenses Against North Korea
Postol during an interview with Newsweek called the missiles "a hoax", although Friday's report doesn't use that language. He is right: This time, North Korea has detailed plans for a missile test that would land in the waters near Guam.


"That was one of those I wish I'd not said", Ellison said.

Kim Jong Un thinks "the nuclear weapons will prevent US from getting involved", Sun said.

Ellison warned Trump's rhetoric could spur Kim to take action first and called for someone to bring "calm to the situation, not spiking it".

The Republican National Committee's rapid-response director, Michael Ahrens, sent video of Ellison's remarks to reporters, calling it "insane", according to The Washington Post.

Ahrens was not alone in his criticism, as many reactions on Twitter agreed.
