KJU Will Not Be Happy When He Sees Pence's Special Guests for Olympic Ceremony

Share

Otto Warmbier’s parents were in the spotlight last week as President Donald Trump recognized them during the State of the Union address. They learned firsthand just how bad life under Kim Jong Un is after their son was imprisoned by the dictator.

Otto eventually was released, but died soon after being returned to the United States.

Now, Vice President Mike Pence is calling on them once again to highlight just how bad conditions are in North Korea.

The Washington Post reported, “Fred Warmbier, the father of Otto Warmbier, an American student who was jailed in North Korea and who died last year after returning to the United States, will attend the Olympics Opening Ceremonies as a guest of Vice President Pence this week.”

Pence left for Asia on Monday with stops in Japan and South Korea. The trip will ultimately culminate in PyeongChang, South Korea, where Pence will lead the U.S. 2018 Winter Olympic delegation.

While at the Olympics, the Vice President will combat North Korea’s propaganda, and reiterate to the world that “all options are on the table” until North Korea halts their nuclear programs.

The Warmbiers have been quite the example to the world of how bad the disastrous regime led by Kim Jung Un truly is.

Otto Warmbier was just 22-years-old when he died following 15 months of imprisonment by North Korea. He was found to have severe brain damage, but the exact cause of death is still a mystery.

Otto’s parents became outspoken critics of the Obama administration for “not doing enough to bring their son home.” However, President Trump has used their story to showcase how things must change in North Korea.

Do you agree with Pence's decision to bring Otto's father to the Olympics?

In his State of Union speech, President Trump recalled the Warmbiers’ resilience.

“You are powerful witnesses to a menace that threatens our world, and your strength inspires us all. Tonight we pledge to honor Otto’s memory with American resolve,” he stated.

Fred and Cindy Warmbier then received a standing ovation.

Make no mistake, Uncle Sam is sending North Korea a strong message by sending Otto’s father and Pence to the Olympic ceremonies.

It’s a message of resilience. It’s a message that says we have not forgotten and we will not be bullied by murderous dictators.

Thank God we have leaders who won’t bow their knee to threats imposed by this dictatorship. Instead, they are sending a strong message that will most certainly be heard by all of North Korea and the entire world.
