Yes, Trump Talked About Human Rights With Kim Jong Un - Katie Pavlich

Donald Trump has said that his historic summit with Kim Jong Un would not have happened with Otto Warmbier, the U.S. university student who was detained and tortured in North Korea for 17 months.

"China has consistently held that sanctions are not the goal in themselves", Geng said at a daily briefing.

North Korea blamed botulism and ingestion of a sleeping pill and dismissed torture claims.

Beijing's participation in the penalties is a key to keeping them in play against Kim's regime.

Now, it seems he's admitted that he sometimes "felt foolish" when harshly addressing North Korea and its Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, but he also felt it was a necessary tactic to unite the two countries.

"We appreciate President Trump's recent comments about our family", Fred and Cindy Warmbier said in a statement.

He was the first leader to get the U.S. president to meet with him and he can bring back this great victory to his country and focus on what he says his priority now, which is the shift from the nuclear weapons development to improving the North Korean economy. "But they will be doing things, and I think he wants to do things".

Trump said during the post-summit news conference that the remains of Americans who died during the Korean War will also be brought home. That deal reportedly includes a commitment to a "complete denuclearization" of the Korean peninsula aimed at establishing a "peace regime".


Warmbier, a 22-year-old University of Virginia student from OH, was imprisoned in North Korea in March 2016 after he was arrested for taking a poster from a hotel he was staying in while on a tourist visit to Pyongyang and sentenced to 15 years of hard labor.

Warmbier was detained on January 2, 2016, as his tour group was departing, and accused of hostile acts against the country as an agent of the United States government - specifically, stealing a political poster from his hotel as a "trophy".

'No, I think I've helped them, because I think things will change. We know where it is because of the heat.' It's incredible the equipment we have, to be honest with you.

U.S. Senator Rob Portman of OH said on Tuesday that the day he joined Warmbier's parents to welcome their son home almost a year ago "is a constant reminder to me about the evil nature of this regime".
