Summary

President Trump’s recent remarks about the Otto Warmbier case are the latest example of a “chronic problem” Trump has yet to overcome, Washington Post opinion writer Charles Lane argued Friday.During a news conference Thursday in Hanoi, Trump told reporters that he took North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at his word that he was unaware about the imprisonment of  Warmbier, an American college student who was detained for 17 months -- and then died one week after his release.During Friday's "Special Report" All-Star panel, Lane -- as well as Wall Street Journal columnist Jason Riley and Washington Free Beacon editor-in-chief Matthew Continetti -- weighed in on the political fallout of Trump’s rhetoric regarding Warmbier’s death.CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE FULL SHOWLane began by noting that during Trump’s tribute to the Warmbier family in his 2018 State of the Union address, the president never directly placed blame on Kim, but on the Pyongyang "dictatorship."“He’s been trying to sort of shield Kim from blame for this all along," Lane argued, referring to Trump.
