When Obama allowed Iran to not only capture (which happens) but to ABUSE our brave military sons and daughters while detaining them, Trump promised often from his podiums that those days would come to a quick end once he was elected to office.
In the case of Otto Warmbier, the college student who got sentenced to 15 years of hard labor in a brutal North Korean prison for the petty crime of stealing a communist banner, the President has kept his word.
The student’s father, Fred Warmbier had glowing words for President Trump and said that Obama’s handling of the affair (which was content to leave his son there to serve his 15 years for sign defilement) that the “results speak for themselves.”
His son, who was practically a broken man just at his sentencing, is said to be in a comatose state after the abuse that he endured.
North Korean prisons are often as brutal and soulless as NAZI concentration camps.
Following his thanking of Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) – who’s office declined any statement not on their website when contacted for this article – the senior Warmbier said, “When Otto was first taken, we were advised by the past administration to take a low profile while they worked to obtain his release.”
When this worked only to allow Obama to stall, the father said, “We did so without result. Earlier this year, Cindy and I decided the time for strategic patience was over, and we made a few media appearances and traveled to Washington to meet with Ambassador Joe Yun at the State Department.”
Yun, at the insistence of Donald Trump, “aggressively pursued resolution of the situation” he added. “They have our thanks for bringing Otto home.”
An inquisitive reporter said, “You thanked President Trump and then you also said that the past administration didn’t do enough, so do you feel like then-President Obama should have been doing more to help?
Some of those also present did not hear the question, so Fred Warmbier clarified, “The question was, do I think the past administration could have done more? I think the results speak for themselves.”
Oddly enough, not only does this apply when talking about Otto Warmbier, but it applies rather nicely to everything that Trump is in the midst of saving us all from which, in its own way, can be as hopeless as a North Korean prison.
