It is indeed a TDS question as your answer shows. So the kid was arrested while Obama was in office and he didn't get him out, Trump got him released but "I wonder if the only reason KJU released him was because of the injury and obvious impending death." I don't blame either one of them or think either one did any better than the other. And right there you've absolved the Messiah, and dismissed Trump's accomplishment while portraying yourself as fair-minded. https://www.theatlantic.com/news/archive/2017/06/otto-warmbier/530448/ Otto Warmbier’s father said Thursday he does not believe North Korea’s explanation for why the 22-year-old University of Virginia student is in a coma, credited the Trump administration for freeing his son, and criticized the Obama administration’s advice to the family “to keep a low profile.” Fred Warmbier said the Obama administration had urged the family to “keep a low profile” for fear of offending the North Koreans, whose leadership is seen as unpredictable. At least three other U.S. citizens are in North Korean custody, and the country regularly tests missiles and nuclear devices—in violation of its international obligation—threatening its neighbors, U.S. military personnel in the region, as well as U.S. territory. The Obama administration had called for “strategic patience” with North Korea, a policy the Trump administration has publicly departed from. When asked Thursday if the Obama administration could have done more to free their son, Fred Warmbier replied: “I think the results speak for themselves.” The “time for strategic patience is over,” he said, “We’ve been brutalized [by North Korea] for the last 18 months with misinformation, no information.” He said their silence so far was based on the “false premise” that North Korea “would treat Otto well.” He said he’d spoken to President Trump about his son’s release, calling the president “kind.” “It was nice,” he said of the call. “And it was gracious, and it felt good.” https://www.foxnews.com/world/paren...rth-korea-want-son-to-be-part-of-negotiations Obama had a fancy name for standing around doing nothing-Strategic Patience.
