TRUMP:  “HE DID NOT DIE IN VAIN”

“Otto Warmbier is a very special person and he will be for a long time in my life.  His parents are good friends of mine.  I think without Otto, this would not have happened,” Trump told reporters at a news conference in Singapore following the summit.

Trump’s comments came after he met with Kim Jong Un, North Korea’s dictator, in Singapore on Tuesday, June 12th, the first anniversary of Otto’s release from a North Korean prison.  This historic summit came 65 years after hostilities were ceased on the Korean Peninsula in 1953.

Accomplishing what the previous eleven presidents could not or would not, Trump became the first U.S. president to meet with a North Korean dictator.  He brought up Otto in response to questions criticizing his praise for Kim given North Korea’s history of human rights violations.

OTTO’S SACRIFICE LEAD TO SINGAPORE SUMMIT

The president credited Otto’s death with bringing attention to the dire situation in North Korea, prompting world leaders to improve relations with the isolated country.

“Something happened from that day, was a terrible thing. It was brutal,” Trump explained.  “But a lot of people started to focus on what was going on, including North Korea. I really think that Otto is someone who did not die in vain.  He had a lot to do with us today.”

Fred and Cindy Warmbier, Otto’s parents, released a statement on Tuesday thanking Trump for remembering their son at the Singapore Summit.

“We appreciate President Trump’s recent comments about our family.  We are proud of Otto and miss him.  Hopefully, something positive can come from this,” they said in the statement.

Otto Warmbier, a 22-year-old Ohio student at the University of Virginia, was arrested and sentenced to 15 years of hard labor after he took a poster from the Pyongyang hotel where he was staying while on a tourist trip to North Korea.

North Korean officials released Otto on “humanitarian grounds,” but he arrived to the U.S. in a coma.  He died soon after on June 19, 2017.

Doctors have been unable to determine the exact cause of Otto’s death, but his parents, as well as Trump, are certain he was tortured by the Kim regime before his release.  Otto’s torture included pulling out all his teeth and inserting them back into the wrong holes.

Rest In Peace, Otto
