Rep. Keith Ellison: Kim Jong-un is 'Acting More Responsible' Than Trump

Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., said President Donald Trump had elevated North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un as a "world stage player" in his statements over their nuclear weapons program, The Hill reported Saturday.

"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.

"And what I would like to see is negotiations and bring the parties together we need to bring North Korea, South Korea, America, Russia, Japan and China together to talk about how we can actually live in harmony together. Well, he's acting more responsible than this guy", Congressman Keith Ellison said alluding to Trump during a gathering of online activists in Georgia.

"I think that the president unfortunately has elevated Kim Jong-Un now", McCaskill said at a town hall meeting Friday, the Daily Journal Online reported.

President Trump, in contrast, Savage said, responded to Kim's threat to fire missiles that would strike near the US territory of Guam with a warning that North Korea would be met with "fire and fury like the world has never seen".

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".

Upon leaving the panel, Ellison sought to do damage control, telling The Washington Post's Dave Weigel that he wished he had not made the remark. "It's tailor-made for somebody to misuse".

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