Olympics could open North Korea -- Rex Tilley

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), deputy chairman of the Democratic National Convention, claimed Friday that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un is more responsible than President Donald Trump.

Trump has not backed down from his fiery warnings from North Korea, offering a third stern warning in a week to Pyongyang on Friday. "You have this guy making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there".

"The President has to act like the President of the United States, when you hear words come out of his mouth it seems like they could come out of the mouth of Kim Jong Un", he continued.

Of Trump's "fire and fury" remarks, Mattis said: "The rhetoric is up to the president".

According to The Washington Post, Mattis told a pool of reporters Wednesday that "of course there's a military option" in place to address North Korea, but "we want to use diplomacy".

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

The Labour leader, a long time anti-war campaigner, said the result of a nuclear strike would go on for decades, adding: "I ask them both, calm down". I'd say he's being incredibly irresponsible and he's putting us in a situation where you could have an accidental launch.

However his latest calls for calm came before Trump's latest threat to North Korea when he tweeted out a message warning that the USA was "locked and loaded". A panel co-hosted by the American Civil Liberties Union brainstormed ways to respond if a military crisis broke out and the Trump administration were to respond by curtailing civil liberties.

The Republican National Committee took issue with Ellison's analysis of the two political leaders.
