Keith Ellison: I Regret Saying NKorea's Kim 'More Responsible' Than Trump

Keith Ellison: I Regret Saying NKorea's Kim 'More Responsible' Than Trump”

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

He said: "Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!"

There were murmurs of agreement in the room before Ellison described what would need to happen before a "missile launch" become a reality.

He went on to urge the crowd that if they "don't want to get caught, deer-in-the-headlights", when missiles start flying that they should "call in North Korea immediately".

In a short interview after the speech, Ellison dialed back the Kim-Trump comparison.

"I know people say the rhetoric wasn't stopping the advancement of their weapons, but we're tracking it and we have the technology to intercept", McCaskill said Friday.

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

"North Korea is a serious thing", Ellison told attendees at the NetrootsNation conference.

"What we need is someone bringing calm to the situation, not spiking it", he emphasized. "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". At other planning sessions, activists plotted direct action in the case of actual hostilities.

As a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, McCaskill said she was confident in USA missile defense systems protecting Guam and America's west coast, though she remained anxious about Trump's capabilities in global negotiations.

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.
