During a discussion at the Netroots Nation Annual Conference on Friday, DNC Deputy Chair Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN) stated President Trump is threatening Kim Jong-un and that North Korea's leader is acting in a more responsible manner than the president is. When you hear words come out of his mouth, it seems like they could come out of the mouth of Kim Jong-un.

The comments come after Mr Trump said America was "locked and loaded' in readiness for war following the growing tensions over North Korea's refusal to end its nuclear weapons programme".

He continued, "The time for cranking up the antiwar machine is right now. Well, he's acting more responsible than this guy", Congressman Keith Ellison said alluding to Trump during a gathering of online activists in Georgia.

Trump tells Guam Governor 'you are safe'
But Guam's governor said Thursday he supported Trump's stern warning to North Korea, saying "I want a president that says that". On Aug. 11, he said that military solutions are "locked and loaded" should North Korea continue its threats.

"It's tailor-made for somebody to misuse", Ellison said.

Trump has not backed down from his fiery warnings from North Korea, offering a third stern warning in a week to Pyongyang on Friday.

"I subscribe to the Churchillian maxim of "jaw-jaw is always better than war-war" and given the consequences of a potential nuclear war, clearly, we do need to lower the temperature... rather than continuing in this rather bellicose way in which Donald Trump and indeed Kim Jong-un has been doing".

"I learned one thing about bullies: Unless you stand up to them, even if they're bigger than you, they're going to crush you", Savage told his listeners. "What we need is someone bringing 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.
