Trump credits Warmbier for NK summit: 'Otto did not die in vain'

I really think Otto is someone who did not die in vain.

"But a lot of people started to focus in what was going on, including North Korea".

"I mean, this is what we have, and this is where we are, and I can only tell you from my experience, and I met him, I've spoken with him, and I've met him", Trump said.

Trump, who said that human rights did come up during the talks and that he would hold further conversations on the subject in the future, was responding to a journalist who asked how he could feel so comfortable calling Kim "talented" when the North Korean leader had had some of his own family members killed, starved his own people, and was responsible for Warmbier's death. "So, I think the rhetoric - I hated to do it, sometimes I felt foolish doing it - but we had no choice", he told Hannity. Otto did not die in vain.

So, this is just the beginning of what is going to be a long and complicated road with many detours and bumps, no doubt and we will see what happens as it is going forward.

He was taken straight from Lunken Airport to University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he died six days later.

Warmbier returned to OH in June 2017 in a coma after North Korea released him on "humanitarian grounds".

"It's important for us to remember that it's largely words at this point, and that we have to look for actions, particularly from North Korea", Panetta said during an interview with FOX Business' Neil Cavuto on Tuesday.

Hamilton County Coroner Dr. Lakshmi Sammarco listed Warmbier's cause of death as brain damage from oxygen deprivation through "an unknown insult more than a year prior to death".

But instead, she said, the North Koreans left him in a awful 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.

Kim did pledge to destroy one particular missile-engine testing site, according to Trump-though this was not in the agreement they signed.

He will be ending joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea.

Trump said he is open to visiting Kim some day in Pyongyang.
