Democrat Rep. Keith Ellison, the Democrat Party’s #2, just said that President Trump is worse than the North Korean dictator, Kim Jong Un. Do other Democrats agree with this?
KEITH ELLISON: “North Korea is a serious thing. 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 is acting more responsibly than this guy is.

So, if you don’t want to get caught deer in the headlights, start calling for diplomacy in North Korea immediately.”

DETROIT — Growing up black and Republican outside the heavily Democratic city of Flint, Michigan, Kelly Mitchell learned from her parents the importance of sticking to her beliefs and working hard to achieve goals.
On Monday, she’ll mark a personal and professional milestone: Casting her vote as a member of Michigan’s Electoral College along with her father and fellow elector, Henry Hatter.
“I really wanted this for me and my dad,” said Mitchell, a sales account manager from Grand Rapids, state party official and member of President-elect Donald Trump’s energy-focused transition team. “My dad is probably my biggest cheerleader. I was raised … by two loving parents and have been an activist in Michigan politics for over 30 years.”
