The father of the American held prisoner in North Korea, Fred Warmbier, held a press conference yesterday where he praised President Trump.
He then slammed the Obama administration who, of course, completely failed to help secure his son’s release.
Warmbier said, he and his wife, Cindy, had decided to take a more public stance in calling for their son’s release, after months of following advice that they should try not to antagonize or offend leaders in North Korea.
“When Otto was first taken, we were advised by the past administration to take a low profile while they worked to obtain his release,” Warmbier 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.”
When asked whether he believes the Obama administration could have done more to secure Warmbier’s release, he replied, “I think the results speak for themselves.”
He said that he had spoken to President Trump last night, describing the call as gracious.
