Republican congressman Adam Kinzinger accused President Donald Trump on Sunday for taking a shot at former vice president Joe Biden while praising North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
Kinzinger, an air force veteran who served twice in Iraq and remained in the Illinois National Guard, complained about a tweet the President had posted on Memorial Day weekend.
& # 39; It's Memorial Day Weekend and you have a chance at Biden while praising a dictator. This is just wrong, & Kinzinger wrote on Twitter.

Kinzinger, who also served in Afghanistan, often talks about military matters and is a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House.
He was one of the few Republicans who criticized the leader of their party for his tweet.
Republican delegate Liz Cheney, a party leader on Capitol Hill, stepped on the question when asked about it at ABC & # 39; s & # 39; This Week. & # 39;
& # 39; I think what we have seen so far with this president regarding North Korea is that he is doing the right thing in terms of policy, & # 39; she said.
And she didn't bite when she was pressed to the problem.
& # 39; I would say that you have to judge on the basis of actions, you have to look at where we are today and where we are today, the president ran away, he was not willing to accept a fake deal of his predecessors, & Cheney said.
Kinzinger, a republican legislator from Illinois, retweeted Saturday's Trump tweet by Biden an & # 39; swampman & # 39; with a & # 39; low IQ & # 39; to name.
& # 39; North Korea has fired some small weapons, which has disturbed some of my people, and others, but not me. I am confident that President Kim will keep his promise to me, and also smiled when he called Swampman Joe Biden an IQ person with a low IQ and worse. Maybe that sends me a signal ?, & Trump wrote.
Trump referred to a recent piece published by state-run media in North Korea.
The editors were full of insults thrown at Biden, who is an & # 39; idiot of layer IQ & # 39; and an & # 39; imbecile without elemental quality as a human & # 39; was named.
Biden, who runs for the Democratic presidential nomination, often strikes Trump's relationship with & # 39; dictators and tyrants & # 39; such as Kim and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Andrew Bates, director of quick response for Biden & # 39; s campaign, hit back on the president.
"Given Vice President Biden's reputation for standing up for American values and interests, it's no surprise that North Korea would have preferred Donald Trump to stay in the White House," he said.
Kinzinger did not support Trump in the 2016 elections.
& # 39; I am an American before I am a Republican & # 39 ;, he then told CNN.
But Kinzinger has also defended the president.
He told MSNBC earlier this month that he did not agree with fellow Republican representative Justin Amash that Trump should be accused.

& # 39; I don't agree with him, & # 39; Kinzinger said to MSNBC & # 39; s & # 39; Morning Joe & # 39 ;.
He debated special advice Robert Mueller & # 39; s report on the role of Russia in the 2016 election acquitted the president.
& # 39; There is no evidence of collusion and when it comes to the problem of obstruction, nothing is said about it & he said.
Kinzinger was also asked about Trumps hard talk about Iran.
The president threatened the Muslim country last weekend and wrote on Twitter: & # 39; If Iran wants to fight, it will be the official end of Iran. Never threaten the United States again! & # 39;
Kinzinger said he would not always like Trump's words, but agreed that Iran is a threat.
& # 39; I don't necessarily agree with the way the president puts everything, but I think I think it's a legitimate threat from Iran & he said.
