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

Bennie Garza | 12 June, 2018, 21:59

"I think that without Otto this would not have happened".

He says, "The past does not have to define the future".

Trump has appeared largely unconcerned about the implications of feting an authoritarian leader suspected of ordering the public assassination of his half brother with a nerve agent, executing his uncle by firing squad and killing U.S. college student Otto Warmbier.

The summit, where Trump and Kim signed a joint statement agreeing to pursue the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, was held on the one-year anniversary of Warmbier's release.

Warmbier's mother Cindy told a United Nations symposium on the human rights situation in North Korea last month: 'I can't let Otto die in vain.

Trump says human rights did come up during the talks, albeit briefly. I think without Otto, this would not have happened.

Warmbier was "a very special person and he will be for a long time in my life", he said, adding that the student's parents were "good friends of mine".

"Today I assured his dad, as the president said two days ago, their beloved son, Otto Warmbier, will not have died in vain", Pence said.

He called Warmbier's death "brutal", but noted that "a lot of people started to focus on what was going on including North Korea".

The North Koreans claimed that Warmbier contracted botulism, caused by a rare toxin, and then fell into coma after taking a sleeping pill.

But in his first face-to-face encounter with Kim, Trump was accused of ignoring the pariah state's human rights record.

Otto Warmbier was detained in North Korea in January 2016 after allegedly stealing a propaganda poster at his hotel during his five-day tour of the country.

'He wants to do the right thing, ' he said of Kim.

"No, I think I've helped them, because I think things will change". We're not special, but we're Americans and we know what freedom's like, and we have to stand up for this.

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". The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., seeks compensation for the death of their 22-year-old son in June 2017.

But Sammarco said it would be impossible to determine how Warmbier received the traumatic brain injury. But doctors in Cincinnati found no evidence of botulism - yet also said there were no signs of fractures to indicate he was beaten into the coma. 'People say why are you doing this?

'The only thing we can do is rub their noses in this.
