President Donald Trump and the family of Otto Warmbier, an American college student murdered by North Korea, have now traded words.

The Warmbier family has been grateful to President trump since he helped get their son back from North Korea.

But it was too late by the time he came as he was in a coma, after being captured during the Obama administration’s tenure.

The Obama administration did virtually nothing to get him back which led to his torture and eventual death.

Then this week after talks with North Korea broke off President trump was asked about Warmbier’s death and Kim Jong Un’s knowledge of the events.

“He tells me that he didn’t know about it and I will take him at his word,” the president said about the North Korean chairman.

President Trump said that Kim Jong Un “felt badly about it. He felt very badly,” pertaining to Warmbier’s death.

Cindy and Fred Warmbier fired back at President Trump on Friday after he returned home from the summit in Vietnam.

Was Trump wise in not provoking Kim?

“We have been respectful during this summit process. Now we must speak out,” they said in a statement.

“Kim and his evil regime are responsible for the death of our son Otto,” the family said.

“Kim and his evil regime are responsible for unimaginable cruelty and inhumanity. No excuses or lavish praise can change that,” they said.

President Trump was not pleased with how his comments have been represented and issued his own statement in response.

“I never like being misinterpreted, but especially when it comes to Otto Warmbier and his great family,” he said.

“I got Otto out along with three others. The previous Administration did nothing, and he was taken on their watch,” he said.

“Of course I hold North Korea responsible for Otto’s mistreatment and death,” President Trump said.

“Most important, Otto Warmbier will not have died in vain. Otto and his family have become a tremendous symbol of strong passion and strength, which will last for many years into the future. I love Otto and think of him often,” he said.
