Keith Ellison Claims North Korean Leader Is 'More Responsible' Than Trump

Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) quickly walked back remarks he made Friday that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un was acting "more responsible" than President Donald Trump, saying it was "tailor-made for somebody to misuse".

He further argued that "there's a much greater danger if there were to be any kind of degree of ambiguity in connection with the kind of response that Kim Jong Un could expect if he were to threaten the United States or our allies".

The intervention comes days after the Labour leader, a long-term opponent and campaigner against nuclear weapons, highlighted the threat to civilians that such weapons pose.

Writing in the Sunday Mirror, Mr Corbyn said there can be "no question of blind loyalty to the erratic and belligerent Trump administration" over the crisis. I mean, we're not North Korea, thank God.

The Labour leader's intervention comes after China's president warned the United States and North Korea not to exacerbate tensions after Mr Trump said Kim would "truly regret" military action. President Trump launched his fiercest warning to the rogue state last week, warning it faces "fire and fury like the world has never seen" if it continues to threaten the USA with missiles.

The BBC discovered that Kim Jong Nam had been secretly planning to become a European citizen and defect to the West.

"If he utters one threat in the form of an overt threat", Trump told reporters, "if he does anything with respect to Guam, or anyplace else that's an American territory or an American ally, he will truly regret it, and he will regret it fast".
