Rumble U.S. President Donald Trump said the U.S. didn't pay North Korea any money for the release of Otto Warmbier. This statement comes after Trump approved a $2 million bill from Pyongyang to cover the care of the comatose college student. Warmbier was held prisoner in a North Korean prison for 17 months until June 2017. The student was simply visiting North Korea as a tourist and was accused of allegedly trying to steal an item with a propaganda slogan from his hotel.
