The parents of Otto Warmbier, the University of Virginia student who was detained in North Korea, say they are “very happy” with Trump stating he would be “honored” to meet with The Glorious Potato, Kim Jong-un.
“I want to first get your reaction, Fred [Warmbier], to President Trump saying that he would be ‘honored’ to meet with the controversial North Korean leader,” Brown said.
“Cindy and I are encouraged by this,” Warmbier said, perhaps rather unexpectedly. “Our mission is to bring our son home.”
“President Trump’s willingness to focus on the big picture, the relationship between the United States and North Korea, anything he can do toward improving that and also including Otto in the solution…I think is good for Otto,” he explained.
“Honestly I think it’s gonna be good for our country,” Warmbier continued. “We’re very happy about this.”
Warmbier was a 21-year-old economics major at U.V. when he was detained this past January while studying abroad. He was sentence to 15 years of hard labor for allegedly stealing a propaganda sign.
