North Korea Demanded The U.S. Pay $2,000,000 For The Medical Care Of Comatose Prisoner Otto Warmbier

Daily Mail: Trump administration agreed to pay Kim Jong-Un's regime $2 MILLION for Otto Warmbier's 'care' before he was handed over by North Korea - then stiffed dictator on the bill

* A new book claims that North Korea gave the United States a $2 million bill to cover its expenses for the care of comatose Otto Warmbier
* There are conflicting reports as to whether the bill has been paid
* Otto’s father, Fred Warmbier, said that he had not been informed about any hospital bill and it sounded like a 'ransom' for his late son
* North Korean sentenced Otto Warmbier to 15 years in jail in 2016 for stealing a poster before returning him to the U.S. in a coma in 2017
* He died shortly after of complications from the injury that are not entirely known
* Scans of Warmbier's brain before his death revealed extensive brain damage associated with unexplained trauma that U.S. neurosurgeons couldn't pinpoint
* Warmbier died on June 19, 2017, in Cincinnati, Ohio at the age of 22
