U.S. President Donald Trump’s policy of brinkmanship against North Korea could lead the United States toward an accidental war, as tensions rise between Washington and Pyongyang, said Democratic Senator Brian Schatz.

Schatz urged Americans in a series of tweets on Sunday night to heed Republican Senator Bob Corker’s comment that Trump could lead the United States toward “World War III.”

Democratic Senator Brian Schatz from Hawaii quoted as saying:

“There’s a tendency to wonder about the politics of Corker’s interview. Ignore that, and listen to his warnings about an accidental war.”

“War on Korean Peninsula could shut down trade to and from Asia for months or years.”

“War on the Korean Peninsula would cause millions of lives to be lost.”

“There are nearly 200,000 Americans living in South Korea and Japan,” he said.
