Rep. Engel Compares Trump To Kim Jong Un

Trump on North Korea Comments'What I Said is What I Mean

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.

DeSantis introduced an amendment to the House-passed defense spending bill this summer which authorizes the Secretary of Defense to terminate or prohibit contracts with China companies found to have ties to North Korea.

Ellison, the Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee, initially made the comment at a panel during the left-wing activist gathering Netroots Nation in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Republican seemingly doesn't have much respect for Kim Jong Un, calling him a "plump, immature kid" who's in power because of accident of birth.

"I've traveled and (seen) the anti-ballistic missiles that we have in Alaska, South Korea, Guam as part of my service on the Armed Services Committee", she continued.

"That was one of those I wish I'd not said", Ellison explained. "It's tailor-made for somebody to misuse.

Is President Trump driving this or is North Korea?" I mean, his rhetoric might make Kim Jong Un think that he needs to strike first. And so, what we need to do is try to tamper down this crisis. Democrats appear to be playing a risky game of using the threat of nuclear war as a way to tear down Trump.

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

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