GETTYWhere is Guam? The remote holiday destination is a US territory in Micronesia
On Friday's "CNN Newsroom", Representative Eliot Engel (D-NY) stated that President Trump says things that seem like they could have been said by Kim Jong-un.
North Korea announced on Wednesday a plan to attack the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam would be complete by mid-August.
"You have this guy making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there", he said, referring to Trump. Kim Jong Un is threatning to fire nuclear missiles at a nation he is not at war with, which has at least a thousand times as much nuclear firepower as he does.
"That was one of those I wish I'd not said", Ellison explained. I'd say, he's being incredibly irresponsible, and he's putting us in a situation where you could have an accidental launch.
On Friday, Trump changed the tone of some of his recent bombastic comments and worked to sooth tensions with North Korea.
"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. And so, what we need to do is try to tamper down this crisis. "Well, he's acting more responsible than this guy", Congressman Keith Ellison said alluding to Trump during a gathering of online activists in Georgia.
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.
