North Korea has again denied torturing Warmbier. A North Korean spokesman said the American was given “sincere medical care on humanitarian grounds in consideration of his failing health until he returned to the U.S.,” according to the Associated Press.
In a statement, the unnamed foreign ministry spokesman also accused Trump of lying about Warmbier’s condition to put more pressure on North Korea amid global nuclear tensions.
“The fact that the old lunatic Trump and his riff-raff slandered the sacred dignity of our supreme leadership, using bogus data full of falsehood and fabrications, only serves to redouble the surging hatred of our army and people towards the U.S.,” the statement said, according to the AP.
