Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) speaks in Phoenix in January.

"The North Korean regime is the cause of this problem and they must fix it", he said.

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

Boris Johnson last night backed Donald Trump in the incendiary war of words between the US President and North Korea's Kim Jong Un. "Well, he's acting more responsible than this guy", Congressman Keith Ellison said alluding to Trump during a gathering of online activists in Georgia.

There were murmurs of agreement in the room before Ellison described what would need to happen before a "missile launch" become a reality. "So if you don't want to get caught, deer-in-the-headlights, start calling for diplomacy in North Korea immediately".

"North Korea is a serious thing", the Minnesota Democrat said during a question-and-answer session at the progressive Netroots Nation conference in Atlanta on Friday.

Illegal immigrants found locked in hot trailer in Edinburg, Texas
Police say the owner of the trailer is from Cuba, and the immigrants inside were from Romania, Guatemala and Mexico. Officials said they knocked on the trailer and heard knocking from the other side, according to an NBC affiliate.


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

"We are working with the U.S. and our partners in the region to bring this crisis to a diplomatic end".

Tensions between the two nations have been escalating since the revelation that U.S. intelligence believe North Korea has developed a nuclear warhead small enough to fit on a ballistic missile.

The call followed the latest barrage of threats from Mr Trump, declaring the United States military forces were "locked and loaded" and warning Kim he "will regret it fast" if he takes any action against USA territories or allies.

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