McCain: Americans 'stupid' to still want to travel to NKorea

Delury said the Trump administration may try to pressure China to cut its large numbers of tourists to North Korea until the North apologizes and releases the other Americans.

President Trump describes North Korea's behavior as "brutality" as experts across the board voice condemnation The death of U.S. student Otto Warmbier on June 19, six days after he returned comatose from a 17-month detention in North Korea, appears likely to mean a short-term end to the faint glimmers of Pyongyang and Washington's attempts at exploratory dialogue.

"It's a total disgrace what happened to Otto", Trump told reporters in the Oval Office.

Although Donald Trump tweeted during the campaign that similar detentions would not happen if he became president, Kim Hak-song is also the second American to be detained since Trump's inauguration. More than 15 months after he gave a staged confession in North Korea, he is with.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer said a meeting between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is less likely following Warmbier's death. "We'll continue to apply that".

"There are clear instances of pay-for-play with the Clinton Foundation", he continued.

Asked about potential travel restrictions, the State Department's Nauert said, "we're contemplating that right now". The United States has demanded North Korea release three other US citizens it holds in detention: missionary Kim Dong Chul and academics Tony Kim and Kim Hak Song. "I felt that taking the pulse of the university right now, we needed responses at this point". "But what I'm very angry about is how the Obama administration did nearly nothing to get him back". The result would have been a lot different.

The tweet, which came hours before the United States and China were set to meet in Washington to talk about North Korea, caught multiple Trump administration officials off guard, leaving them scrambling as they tried to figure out what exactly what the President meant.

UK-based Lupine Travel managing director Dylan Harris told AFP that the company which takes in 600 travellers annually was also reconsidering whether to cater to Americans, "but for all other nationalities there will be no change".

The US President authorised two supersonic bombers to fly over the Korean Peninsula in a show of force and later lambasted the communist state's "brutal regime" when Mr Warmbier's death was confirmed.

"Should there be a travel ban for USA citizens going there relative to this". "I don't think human life is negotiable".

U.S. Sen. John McCain says Americans who are "stupid" enough to still want to visit North Korea should be required to sign a waiver absolving the U.S. government of any blame if they're harmed while there. She was US ambassador to South Korea from 2008 to 2011.

"It's painful that Mr. Warmbier was not among them, but our efforts on his behalf never ceased", he said. "The U.S. government should not just throw up its hands and say, 'This is just how North Korea is.' But how do you do that in a smart way where there is some modicum of accountability?" During the meeting, Washington learned of Warmbier's condition. The challenge will be, as you suggest, how to harmonize these approaches and also harmonize them with China's approach in the region, which certainly sees the need for a change in behavior in North Korea, but they're anxious about instability. "It makes the prospect of diplomacy, if that's something the administration is seriously entertaining, much more hard".
