During an exclusive interview with Sean Hannity following the President's historic summit in Singapore Tuesday, Trump weighed in on his harsh rhetoric surrounding the Korean leader; saying he "hated" calling Kim Jong Un "Rocket Man" but "had no choice".

"Otto did not die in vain", Trump said as he discussed North Korea's human rights record.

"His parents are good friends of mine". "So I think it's probably well for everybody to maintain a healthy skepticism until we see those actions taken". Something happened from that day - it was a awful thing.

"But a lot of people started to focus in what was going on, including North Korea".

Warmbier's mother Cindy told a United Nations symposium on the human rights situation in North Korea last month: 'I can't let Otto die in vain.

So, this is just the beginning of what is going to be a long and complicated road with many detours and bumps, no doubt and we will see what happens as it is going forward.

Trump and Kim pledged, in the first ever meeting between leaders of the old foes, to work toward complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula while Washington committed to providing security guarantees.

He was taken straight from Lunken Airport to University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he died six days later.

U.S. Senator Rob Portman of OH said on Tuesday that the day he joined Warmbier's parents to welcome their son home almost a year ago "is a constant reminder to me about the evil nature of this regime".

His parents, at the time, described harrowing details of their son's condition, claiming he was "tortured" and "destroyed" inside the country.

He also blamed previous administrations for remaining silent in the face of North Korea's sharp rhetoric.

Hamilton County Coroner Dr. Lakshmi Sammarco listed Warmbier's cause of death as brain damage from oxygen deprivation through "an unknown insult more than a year prior to death".

North Korean officials said Warmbier suffered a brain injury after contacting botulism, a form of poisoning, but US doctors found no evidence of the condition.

The parents, Fred and Cindy Warmbier, are suing North Korea alleging that the country violated worldwide law by killing their son.
