Ellison: Kim Jong-un Acting More Responsibly Than Trump

BY:

Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) said on Friday that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un was acting "more responsible than" President Donald Trump.

Speaking at the left-wing Netroots Nation conference in Atlanta, Ellison, who serves as Vice-Chair of the Democratic National Committee, spoke briefly on the latest tensions between North Korea and the United States.

Ellison spoke critically of Trump's handling of the situation and called the North Korean despot more responsible than Trump.

"North Korea is a serious thing. You have this guy [Trump] making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there," Ellison said. "Kim Jong-un, the world always thought he was not a responsible leader. Well, he's acting more responsible than this guy is."

Ellison also called for the anti-war movement to ramp up its efforts and called for "diplomacy in North Korea immediately."
