The North Korean communist regime murdered an American citizen for removing a propaganda poster from a hotel wall. President Trump condemned the ‘brutal’ North Korean regime. Trump also called Otto Warmbier’s family to offer his condolences.
Trump condemned North Korea for its brutality and said Otto Warmbier’s death increases the “Administration’s determination to prevent such tragedies from befalling innocent people at the hands of regimes that do not respect the rule of law or basic human decency.”
“Melania and I offer our deepest condolences to the family of Otto Warmbier on his untimely passing. There is nothing more tragic for a parent than to lose a child in the prime of life,” the president said in a statement.
