Trump: Student Who Died After NKorea Imprisonment 'Tortured Beyond Belief'

(Fox News' "Fox and Friends")

By    |   Tuesday, 26 September 2017 10:00 AM

President Donald Trump said in a Tuesday tweet that Otto Warmbier, a University of Virginia student who died after being imprisoned in North Korea, was "tortured beyond belief."

Trump was referencing a Tuesday "Fox & Friends" interview with Warmbier’s parents.

Warmbier was visiting North Korea as a tourist and was arrested in Jan. 2016, with Pyongyang saying that Warmbier attempted to steal a propaganda poster.

He was returned home to the U.S. in June with a severe neurological injury.

Warmbier died one week later.

"North Korea is not a victim. They kidnapped Otto. They tortured him. They intentionally injured him… they are terrorists," Warmbier’s father said on "Fox & Friends."

"He was blind, he was deaf," and it appeared that someone "rearranged his bottom teeth" with pliers, his father said in the "Fox & Friends" interview.

"They destroyed him," his mother said in the interview.
