Ellison: Kim Jong-Un Is 'Acting More Responsibly' Than Trump

Democratic representative Eliot Engel said Friday that he believes President Donald Trump's remarks on North Korea sound too much like Kim Jong Un.

"You have this guy making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there", said Ellison (D-Minn.).

Trump doubled down Thursday, saying his previous bold statements might not have been "strong enough" for Kim Jong Un, whose regime announced a plan to fire four missiles near the USA island territory of Guam in response to the White House's bold rhetoric. "Well, he's acting more responsible than this guy is". "So if you don't want to get caught, deer-in-the-headlights, start calling for diplomacy in North Korea immediately".

"I know people say the rhetoric wasn't stopping the advancement of their weapons, but we're tracking it and we have the technology to intercept", McCaskill said. "It's tailor-made for somebody to misuse".

He continued, "The time for cranking up the antiwar machine is right now".

On Thursday, Kim Jong-un threatened to strike waters around the USA base in Guam. "What we need is someone bringing calm to the situation, not spiking it".

Consequently, if Kim's warheads strike United States military bases in the Pacific, the U.S. could ask for Britain's assistance, but cannot formally compel the UK and other NATO allies to join the military efforts against North Korea. A panel co-hosted by the American Civil Liberties Union brainstormed ways to respond if a military crisis broke out and the Trump administration were to respond by curtailing civil liberties. Ellison, a Minnesota Democrat, later retracted that but still said he thinks Trump is "irresponsible".
