Kim summit 'may not have happened without Otto Warmbier'

The Singapore summit gave hope Tuesday to the families of the more than 7,000 US service members missing from the Korean War that they will finally get an accounting.

Trump tweeted in September 2017 that Warmbier "was tortured beyond belief by North Korea". I really think Otto is someone who did not die in vain.

"We are going to take care of a very big and very risky problem for the world", Trump said after the meeting in a joint statement with Kim.

The vice president commended Trump on his success thus far with North Korea, speaking of that country's participation in the Winter Olympics, the suspension of all ballistic missile testing and, recently, the release of three American hostages.

'I think without Otto this would not have happened.

"Some North Koreans, they hide the fact that they're from North Korea", says Sarah Cho, founder of an organization that helps defectors start their new lives in the US.

U.S. House Republicans work to craft Dreamer immigration deal
It is a complex bind that makes it highly unlikely that any immigration bill will become law as the result of these negotiations. The talks played out as the Department of Homeland Security announced Wednesday that border agents made 51,912 arrests in May.

On June 6, South Korea's Memorial Day, Moon said the return of the remains of missing Americans and the estimated 120,000 South Koreans also missing from the 1950-53 war was a top priority for the Trump-Kim summit.

'I believe it's a rough situation over there, there's no question about it, and we did discuss it today pretty strongly.at pretty good length, and we'll be doing something on it, ' he said. We know where it is because of the heat.' It's incredible the equipment we have, to be honest with you.

Cindy and Fred Warmbier said in the civil suit filed at Washington District Court that their son was imprisoned by North Korea, after being forced to confess to stealing a poster, while he was in the country on a tourist visit in early February 2016.

His family has said North Korea "destroyed" him and sued North Korea alleging the "rogue regime took Otto hostage for its own wrongful ends and brutally tortured and murdered him".

'We are trying to build a pathway that leads directly to Kim and his regime to force them to be answerable for their actions, ' Mr. Warmbier said. "Very few people at that age - you can take one out of 10,000 - probably couldn't do it".

The surprise admission came after Hannity asked the President about criticism stemming from the bombast he directed at the North Korean leader during an interview which will air Tuesday evening. How can I not?
