Pentagon Ready to 'Fight Tonight' as Tensions Between US, North Korea Escalate

Pentagon Ready to 'Fight Tonight' as Tensions Between US, North Korea Escalate

US President Donald Trump issued a new threat to North Korea on Friday, saying American weapons were "locked and loaded" as Pyongyang accused him of driving the Korean Peninsula to the brink of nuclear war.

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

A Reddit user posted a diptych of Trump and Jong-un with their hair meticulously swapped on August 10, coinciding with the publication of French magazine Libération's take on the very same idea, and it features an outstandingly blond, Trump-ified version of the North Korean leader.

He went on to urge the crowd that if they "don't want to get caught, deer-in-the-headlights", when missiles start flying that they should "call in North Korea immediately".

"That was one of those I wish I'd not said", Ellison said.

We should challenge Kim to present a new face to the world and offer to come in and provide whatever assistance they need to make the whole thing a success.

Leaders of most countries would buckle under the weight of economic sanctions such as those the United Nations is preparing to implement against North Korea. Democrats appear to be playing a unsafe game of using the threat of nuclear war as a way to tear down Trump. Ellison, a Minnesota Democrat, later retracted that but still said he thinks Trump is "irresponsible". 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.
