Trump to Have Dinner With Otto Warmbier’s Parents at White House

On Saturday President Trump will reportedly host the parents of Otto Warmbier, the U.S. college student who was held captive by North Korea for 17 months and died after being returned to the U.S.

Fred and Cindy Warmbier are scheduled to have dinner at the White House with Mr. Trump and Richard Grenell, the U.S. ambassador to Germany, CNN reported. The White House has not commented on the dinner.

Warmbier, a University of Virginia student from Ohio, was arrested while visiting Pyongyang in early 2016 and accused of trying to steal a propaganda poster from a hotel. He remained in North Korean custody until June 2017, when he was returned to the U.S. in a comatose state and died within days. He was 22. It was not clear how the White House dinner was arranged or if anyone else will attend, CNN reported.
