President Donald Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity Monday that his "little rocket man" brand of rhetoric from earlier this year made him feel "foolish" at times, but that it was all part of a grand strategy to get Kim Jong Un to the table.
Is it the first step towards the opening up of one of the world's most reclusive regimes? "I think we just need to continue to be concerned about whether or not North Korea is going to stand by its word".
"But a lot of people started to focus in what was going on, including North Korea".
"Otto Warmbier is a very special person and he will be for a very long time in my life".
The summit between the two leaders occurred on Monday evening U.S. time and Tuesday in Singapore, ending with Trump and Kim vowing to "denuke" North Korea. According to current reports, it ended amicably with the two shaking hands and smiling, though details of their plan still need to be hashed out. In fact, I would say it's somewhat disgusting.
Many are freaking out over Trump's real estate comments, but it's hard to tell how seriously he meant them and, hey, capitalist development has helped defang dictators at least as bad as Kim.
The lawsuit says Warmbier, a University of Virginia student, was on an innocent five-day trip to North Korea in December 2015 at the time that the U.S. announced new sanctions against Kim's regime over its nuclear weapons proliferation activities.More news: Trudeau's criticism will cost Canada 'a lot of money'

Otto Warmbier was detained in North Korea in January 2016 after allegedly stealing a propaganda poster at his hotel during his five-day tour of the country.
Cindy and her husband Fred Warmbier have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against North Korea, saying its government tortured and killed their son.
He served 527 days of a 15-year sentence of hard labor, during which United States officials staged a surprise trip to Pyongyang last September and demanded that Pyongyang send him home on "humanitarian grounds".
Warmbier was evacuated in a coma on June 13, 2017, and returned home to his family in Cincinnati.
He died days later.
'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. The North Koreans blamed his condition on medicine they said he took for botulism.
