Otto Warmbier, the 22 year old American who was arrested while he was visiting North Korea, has died one week after he was released and flown back to an American hospital where he was in a persistent vegetative state. I think I know why President Trump and others fought to bring him home. There was that slight chance he may recover, but in reality the chance was slim. They knew that he needed to be brought home so he could die here, so that his family could properly bury him. Because, the North Korean government is so untrustworthy, if he had died there, who knows what they would have done to his body. I am sure they would not have given him a proper burial. So, as sad as this story is, at least the family could properly bury him.

@LeaPea2417 So many people including the North Koreans have suffered due to the laws of the North Korean government. There is Human Right Violations every step of the way in that country. Hopefully something will be done after this incident.

It is sad that Obama dropped the ball on this one. May have been able to save this young man.
