The president told a group of reporters:
“North Korea has supported acts of international terrorism, including assassinations on foreign soil. As we take this action today we think of Otto Warmbier and the many others affected by North Korean oppression.”

The assassination to which the president referred was the killing of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un’s estranged brother in Malaysia.
