Trump appeared to sidestep a question about him calling Kim "talented" given North Korea's humanitarian record and human rights violations by crediting Warmbier's death for bringing the two world leaders together.

"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.

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

Well it's in many ways a great victory for Kim Jong-un. "Anyone that takes over a situation like he did at 26 years of age and is able to run it and run it tough - I won't say it's nice, I won't say anything about it".

"I just think that we are now going to start the process of denuclearization of North Korea".

Many are freaking out over Trump's real estate comments, but it's hard to tell how seriously he meant them and, hey, capitalist development has helped defang dictators at least as bad as Kim.

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.

After lengthy negotiations, he was returned to the United States on June 13, 2017, comatose.

"A lot of people, critics quickly saying when you said "Little Rocket Man" or 'fire and fury, ' or when he said, 'Oh, I've got a red button on my desk, ' and you said, 'Well, mine's bigger and it works better than yours, ' how did it evolve from that to this?"

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.
