Facts About North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un

MSNBC host Joy Ried chided President Donald Trump for threatening war against both North Korea and Venezuela saying it was hard to tell his sabre-rattling rhetoric from that of North Korean strongman Kim Jong-un or HBO's "Game of Thrones" character Daenerys Targaryen.

"North Korea is a serious thing", Ellison, D-Minn., told attendees at the NetrootsNation conference during a question-and-answer session.

It prompted Trump to warn that he would unleash "fire and fury" on North Korea if it did not stop its threats to the US.

The remarks drew outrage, and in an interview after the panel with the Washington Post, Ellison went into damage control. "I'd say [Trump's] being incredibly irresponsible and he's putting us in a situation where you could have an accidental launch".

"It's tailor-made for somebody to misuse", he added.

North Korea announced on Wednesday a plan to attack the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam would be complete by mid-August. I mean, his rhetoric might make Kim Jong Un think that he needs to strike first. "Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!" "What we need is someone bringing calm to the situation, not spiking it".

After Trump vowed on Tuesday to treat North Korean threats of hostility with "fire and fury like the world has never seen", the Kim regime announced that it is planning to launch four intermediate-range ballistic missiles into the Pacific Ocean near Guam, a USA territory.

The crisis blew up following the disclosure that United States intelligence analysts had concluded North Korean scientists had developed a nuclear warhead small enough to fit on a ballistic missile.
