Keith Ellison, a Democratic congressman representing Minnesota, said that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un is acting more responsibly than U.S. President Donald Trump. He made the remarks while attending the left-wing Netroots Nation conference. Here are his remarks:
“You have this guy making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there…”
“Kim Jong Un — the world always thought he was not a responsible leader. Well, he’s acting more responsible than this guy.”
He apologized later that day, but the damage had been done.
