Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., said President Donald Trump had elevated North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un as a "world stage player" in his statements over their nuclear weapons program, The Hill reported Saturday.

"You have this guy making bellicose threats against somebody else who has very little to lose over there", he said, referring to Trump. Kim Jong-un has always been words.

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

Trump said Thursday that he might need to be "tougher" than his original promise of "fire and fury" if North Korea continues to threaten the United States.
