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. "All the macho war talk between rounds of golf at Bedminster has made it hard to tell Trump's words from those of the brutal 33-year-old dictator of North Korea", Reid explained.

"You have this guy making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there", said Ellison (D-Minn.).

This appalling obliteration of human beings and their social order affects the Korean perception of US military presence in the region today and can be used by Kim Jong-un forever to cement his authority.

He continued, "The time for cranking up the antiwar machine is right now".

Engel suggested using "behind-the-scenes, quiet" diplomacy in order to solve the crisis with North Korea.

After the conference, Ellison told the Washington Post that he probably shouldn't have made his point that way and immediately knew it could be used as as attack against him.

Discussing the escalating war of words between the USA and North Korea over the latter's rogue nuclear program, Ellison raised eyebrows by saying the North Korea's despotic leader was acting better than the US president. "It's tailor-made for somebody to misuse".

He answered, "I think both. What we need is someone bringing calm to the situation, not spiking it".

"Trump spent this week ratcheting up the rhetoric even as his own cabinet tried to take it down". Michael Ahrens, the RNC's rapid-response director, sent the video of Ellison's comment to reporters, calling it "insane" and and challenging Democrats to respond.
