( sara ) in national news this morning... the family of otto warmbier has issued a
7:20 am
sharp rebuke of president trump after his public defense of dictator kim jong un in the death of their son. brian todd has more. analysts called it a low point.. in an already-dismal news conference...pres. donald trump (no font necessary): "he tells me that he didn't know about it and i will take him at his word."the president saying he supported north korean dictator kim jong un's stance, that kim didn't know of american college student otto warmbier's deteriorating condition in a north korean prison.pres. donald trump (no font necessary): "i don't think the top leadership knew about it. i don't believe that he would have allowed that to happen."tonight that statement is receiving a stinging rebuke from warmbier's parents.fred and cindy warmbier, saying they'd not spoken during the summit, out of respect-- but now, could hold back no longer. in a statement saying quote, "kim and his evil regime are responsible for the death of our son otto... no excuses or lavish praise can change that." robert king/former u.s. special envoy to n.korea for human rights: "for them, this is a horrible situation to go through. and i can understand their concern about what was said."otto warmbier, a student at the university of virginia, was arrested forallegedly stealing a political sign- during his tour of pyongyang in early-2016..during what was
7:21 am
widely seen as a show trial, he wept.-nats-warmbier was sentenced to 15-years of hard labor.a year-and-a-half later, north korean diplomats abruptly asked for a meeting with their u-s counterparts.. and told them the young american was in a coma. warmbier was quickly evacuated-- and died just a couple of days after returning home.trump initially attacked kim and his regime for the death.pres. donald trump (no font necessary): "we need only look at the depraved character of the north korean regime." and he embraced warmier's parents, even inviting them to the state of the union address. pres. donald trump (no font necessary): "you are powerful witnesses to a menace that threatens our world and your strength inspires us all." analysts said that seemed to be a far cry from his comments this week.pres. donald trump (no font necessary): "he felt
7:22 am
badly about it."tonight, facing backlash from the family, the president took to twitter... saying he had been "misinterpreted" on thursday. quote: "of course i hold north korea responsible... for otto's mistreatment and death. most important, otto warmbier will not have died in vain... i love otto and think of him often!"kellyanne conway/adviser to president trump: "what the president is saying there is no indication that chairman kim knew what happened to otto warmbier when it happened."but that seems improbable, experts say-- because after his death, doctors who examined otto warmbier said they believed he'd been in a vegetative state for 14-months, before being sent home.voice of brian todd:"if he's in a vegetative state for 14-months, does kim not know about it at all during that time?robert king/former special envoy to n.korea for human right: "kim would have known as soon as they had determined that this was something that wasn't reversible. he would have known immediately."so why would president trump say he believed kim?analysts say it could have been for pure political expediency.marcus noland/peterson institute for international economics: "human rights groups have not
7:23 am
been given much access to the administration, which is clearly prioritizing the nuclear negotiations and thinking that human rights issues may get in the way." ( sara ) that was brian todd reporting. the warmbier family was recently awarded more than 500 million dollars in a wrongful death lawsuit against north korea. but experts say it's not likely they will collect much... if any of that.
