Trump Says That Without Otto Warmbier, North Korea Summit Wouldn't Have Happened

Trump said Kim informed him of this development during the historic nuclear summit they held Tuesday in Singapore.

In a news conference following the summit, Trump also praised North Korea's beaches "from a real estate perspective". "Otto is someone who did not die in vain".

"A lot of people, critics quickly saying when you said "Little Rocket Man" or 'fire and fury, ' or when he said, 'Oh, I've got a red button on my desk, ' and you said, 'Well, mine's bigger and it works better than yours, ' how did it evolve from that to this?"

"I think without the rhetoric, we wouldn't have been here", Mr. Trump said.

"Without Otto Warmbier, this summit wouldn't have happened", the President said.

Former Defense Secretary under President Barack Obama Leon Panetta says President Trump shouldn't give anything to North Korea until he sees what steps they are prepared to take to denuclearize.

Cindy and Fred Warmbier said in the civil suit filed at Washington District Court that their son was imprisoned by North Korea, after being forced to confess to stealing a poster, while he was in the country on a tourist visit in early February 2016. He died days later on June 19, and it is still not known what exactly killed him.

"When the South-North relations improve, we will push first for the recovery of remains in the Demilitarized Zone", the 154-mile-long, 2.5-mile-wide area separating the two Koreas, Moon said.

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. 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.
