Democrat walks back comment that Kim Jong-un 'more responsible' than Trump

Olympics could open North Korea -- Rex Tilley Keith Ellison says Donald Trump acting more dangerously than North Korean leader
Sammy Stanley | 13 August, 2017, 05:16

Rep. Keith Ellison, the vice chair of the Democratic National Committee, told activists at the progressive Netroots Nation conference that President Trump was acting less responsibly than North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and that antiwar activism needs to ramp up as the president's rhetoric has.

"You have this guy making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there", he said, referring to Trump.

The editorial claimed that Kim Jong-un's army is "capable of fighting any war the US wants" and that the military is "on the standby to launch fire into its mainland, waiting for an order of final attack".

Ellison immediately retracted those remarks in an interview with a Washington Post reporter after leaving the panel.

Since the Clinton administration in the early 1990s, the USA has reacted to Pyongyang's "nuclear blackmail" with negotiated agreements that lead to aid and an easing of sanctions followed invariably by broken promises, a growing nuclear arsenal and more threats.

Pundit tells Jose Mourinho where Man United need to make two signings
What we had was midfielders and wingers scoring, and even central defenders scoring goals from set pieces", Mourinho said. And if they lose Philippe Coutinho between now and the end of the transfer window they won't reach the top four.

"It's tailor-made for somebody to misuse", he added. Democrats appear to be playing a risky game of using the threat of nuclear war as a way to tear down Trump.

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

The United Nations Security Council, with encouragement from the US, voted unanimously at the beginning of August to impose new sanctions against North Korea in retaliation for the regime's recent intercontinental ballistic missile tests.

US President Donald Trump on Saturday reassured Guam it was secure amid mounting regional tensions, vowing that American military forces "stand ready" to safeguard the US Pacific island territory against a belligerent North Korea.

Following that vote, reports indicated that the country has developed a miniaturized nuclear warhead capable of fitting on a missile.
