Summary: ” Warmbier said Trump was “very candid” during such time call, and told him Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and other U.S. Fred Warmbier said his family does not believe North Korea’s explanation that Otto Warmbier fell into a coma at the end of contracting botulism and taking a sleeping pill shortly after his sentencing. Earlier today, University of Cincinnati Medical Center spokeswoman Kelly Martin told reporters, “Otto is in stable condition but he has suffered a severe neurological injury.” “Even if you believe their explanation of botulism, and a sleeping pill causing a coma — and we do not — there’s no excuse, for any civilized nation to have kept his condition a secret and denied him top-notch medical care for, accordingly long,” he added. Appearing prior to reporters in the coat his son wore during his trial in North Korea last year, the father of Otto Warmbier said it was “bittersweet” to have him home at the end of being imprisoned by the hermetic regime, for more than 17 months. “These things are tough to process but he is with us and we are trying to make him comfortable.” Asked by a reporter, whether he believes President Barack Obama’s administration could’ve done more to secure Otto Warmbier’s release, Fred Warmbier replied simply, “I think the results speak, for themselves.” Otto Warmbier visited North Korea as part of a tour organized by a China-based company.”
