Kim summit predicated on death of American Otto Warmbier, president says

Trump says Otto Warmbier 'did not die in vain' after Korea summit Trump-Kim summit predicated on death of American Otto Warmbier, president says

"If the president really wants to make sure that Otto Warmbier didn't die in vain, then I think that it is incumbent on him to be as harsh as humanly possible on the Kim regime", Shapiro said.

His family has said North Korea "destroyed" him and sued North Korea alleging the "rogue regime took Otto hostage for its own wrongful ends and brutally tortured and murdered him".

North Korean officials accused Trump of overdramatizing Warmbier's condition in an effort to pressure Pyongyang over its nuclear weapons arsenal.

Warmbier, 22, was a student at the University of Virginia when he was arrested in North Korea in January 2016 for allegedly stealing a propaganda poster.

Speaking at a press conference after Tuesday's summit in Singapore, Trump paid tribute to Warmbier. Something happened from that day - it was a bad thing. It was brutal. But a lot of people started to focus on what was going on, including North Korea.

Trump and Kim held a historic summit on Tuesday and signed a document stating that Pyongyang would work toward "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

He served 527 days of a 15-year sentence of hard labor, during which United States officials staged a surprise trip to Pyongyang last September and demanded that Pyongyang send him home on "humanitarian grounds".

An Ohio coroner said the cause of his death was lack of oxygen and blood to the brain.

After the meeting, Trump said Kim has a "great personality" and is "a very talented man".

"The outcome is going to determine whether this was a historic turning point or whether this was a debacle".

But instead, she said, the North Koreans left him in a disgusting place with no care to vegetate, and then acted "like we're doing the world a favor" and released him saying he had botulism - which USA doctors never confirmed.

The lawsuit says Warmbier, a University of Virginia student, was on an innocent five-day trip to North Korea in December 2015 at the time that the USA announced new sanctions against Kim's regime over its nuclear weapons proliferation activities.

'So we can't be quiet can we?' Cindy said. "Very few people at that age - you can take one out of 10,000 - probably couldn't do it". How can I not? It embarrasses them. They don't like the world to think that they aren't trying to be a member of the world, and they like to act like a victim, like they've been treated poorly, ' she said.
