Otto Warmbier 'Did Not Die in Vain'

Trump says Otto Warmbier 'did not die in vain' after Korea summit

Trump said at a news conference tonight after meeting face to face with Kim that "real change is indeed possible".

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

"Otto Warmbier is a very special person and he will be for a very long time in my life".

Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un concluded their extraordinary meeting by signing a document in which Trump pledged "security guarantees" to the North and Kim recommitted to the "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

"Otto did not die in vain", Trump said as he discussed North Korea's human rights record.

Trump says human rights did come up during the talks, albeit briefly.

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

Their first moments together were picked apart for any clues about how the political heavyweights would match up.

Trump said that he was friends with Warmbier's parents, and said that they were "special people". Otto did not die in vain. After falling into a coma, Warmbier was brought back to the US but died shortly afterwards. It was brutal. But a lot of people started to focus in what was going on, including North Korea.

Warmbier, a student at the University of Virginia, was arrested and sentenced to 15 years in prison in North Korea for allegedly stealing a propaganda poster. When asked if he was tortured, she said she can't be sure what caused the lack of oxygen to the brain. "He had a lot to do with us being here today".

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

In a landmark 2014 report, United Nations investigators said that 80,000 to 120,000 people were thought to be held in camps in North Korea. We're not special, but we're Americans and we know what freedom's like, and we have to stand up for this.

In April, Warmbier's parents filed a lawsuit against North Korea, alleging that the government tortured and murdered their son.

But Sammarco said it would be impossible to determine how Warmbier received the traumatic brain injury.

North Korean officials said Warmbier suffered a brain injury after contacting botulism, a form of poisoning, but USA doctors found no evidence of the condition.

'So we can't be quiet can we?' Cindy said. How can anybody be quiet when this is going on?' 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.
