An anonymous State Department official said the president sounded like a "dad" when learning of the news.
When President Donald Trump learned of American college student and North Korean prisoner Otto Warmbier's dire medical condition, he immediately sent a plane to land in Pyongyang and bring home the 22-year-old without asking North Korea's permission first, says a report from GQ.
In early June of 2017, Trump-appointed U.S. special representative for North Korea policy Joseph Yun learned that Warmbier was unconscious. "I was completely shocked," said Yun of learning the news. "I came back immediately, and I told Secretary Tillerson ... and we determined at the time that we needed to get him and the other prisoners out as soon as possible, and I should contact Pyongyang and say I wanted to come right away."
