Trump just gave COVER to Kim Jong Un over Otto Warmbier’s death and Rick Santorum is not happy about it…

We just wrote to you about the Trump-Kim summit ending abruptly with no deal.

But that’s only one headline from the summit.

Here’s another one:

President Donald Trump says he doesn’t think North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was involved in the mistreatment of American college student Otto Warmbier, who died after being detained in the North.

Trump says of Kim: “He tells me that he didn’t know about it, and I will take him at his word.”

Trump has taken credit for freeing American prisoners abroad and used Warmbier’s death as a rallying cry against the North’s human rights abuses before softening his rhetoric before talks with Kim.

Warmbier, a University of Virginia student from Ohio, was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor in 2016 on suspicion of stealing a propaganda poster. He died in June 2017, shortly after being sent home in a coma.

His parents say he was tortured.

Here’s the video:



Kim Jong Un is an evil leader who runs his country a lot like his father. We’re talking horrific things they do to the North Korean people.

For Trump to give Kim Jong Un cover like this is unbelievable.

In fact Rick Santorum called it reprehensible:

Santorum says this is the conundrum of Donald Trump for many who like his policies but don’t like some of the things he does and says.

And he’s right. Remember how after the first summit Trump was praising Kim as a great leader? Many of us were shocked by it, but clearly Trump had no problem saying it, even if it was just a tactic to get Kim to comply.

So here we are again, where it appears that Trump not only won’t criticize Kim over the death of Otto Warmbier, but suggests he had nothing to do with it.

Ugh.
