Rep. Engel Compares Trump To Kim Jong Un

North Korea announced a detailed plan to launch a salvo of ballistic missiles toward the US Pacific territory of Guam a major military hub and home to US bombers

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

"That was one of those I-wish-I'd-not-said", Ellison said. When you hear words come out of his mouth, it seems like they could come out of the mouth of Kim Jong-un. "It's tailor-made for somebody to misuse". And - but I'm telling you is that, once these - once you start seeing missile launches, you're going to see - the time for cranking up the anti-war machine is right now. "And they extend to where China understands that doing business with the United States means that they shouldn't be doing business with North Korea - that obviously is a big blow to Kim Jong Un's regime because China is really their economic lifeline".

During an appearance at the Netroots Nation conference in Atlanta Friday, Ellison addressed the recent exchange of inflammatory rhetoric between Trump and North Korea, saying North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was acting more responsibly than the US president.

"We don't know that much about this guy", he says.

The United States should put economic pressure on North Korea through China, according to Republican Congressman Ron DeSantis, who represents parts of Northeast Florida. The escalation between the USA and North Korea has prompted the bookie to serve up a menu of North Korea specials for its punters. And so, what we need to do is try to tamper down this crisis.

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