The death of 22-year-old American Otto Warmbier has drawn a fierce reaction from President Donald Trump.
On Tuesday, Trump called what happened to Warmbier a “disgrace” and that he should have been brought home “a long time ago.”

Further, two B-1B Bombers flew over the Korean Peninsula in a show of force against the twisted communist state.
And while Trump might have been wanting China to help rein in North Korea, he’s decided it’s not doing enough.
The president tweeted:
While I greatly appreciate the efforts of President Xi & China to help with North Korea, it has not worked out. At least I know China tried!

China has yet to issue a statement in response to the commander in chief. But one thing is for certain: tensions on the Korean Peninsula, especially after the death of Warmbier, are very, very high.
