Fred and Cindy Warmbier, in a conversation with Tucker Carlson, remarked that neither administration – Obama’s or Trump’s – had done much to reassure them that their son, Otto, would be released.
Otto Warmbier, arrested more than a year ago in North Korea for having stolen a poster from the wall of the hotel, was sentenced to 15 years hard labor.
What the Warmbiers didn’t know was that the moment Trump was sworn in, his office was already working to release all American prisoners from North Korea.
That’s the big difference between Trump and Obama:
While our former commander-in-chief busied himself with funneling billions of taxpayer money to Leftist causes, Trump cares far more about SAVING this country and its citizens.
“Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says that North Korea has released Otto Warmbier, an American serving a 15-year prison term with hard labor for alleged anti-state acts.
Tillerson says that Warmbier is on his way back to the U.S. to be reunited with his family.
He says in a statement that the State Department secured Warmbier’s release at the direction of President Donald Trump. Tillerson says the State Department continues discussing three other detained Americans with North Korea.
The announcement comes as former NBA player Dennis Rodman is paying a return visit to North Korea.
Warmbier is a University of Virginia student from suburban Cincinnati. He was sentenced in March 2016 after a televised tearful public confession to trying to steal a propaganda banner.”
Sadly, Otto returned to the U.S. in a coma, apparently suffering from an attack of botulism. The sleeping pill doctors gave him couldn’t revive him, so we pray for the young man’s recovery.
In the meantime, it appears that, had Obama acted more conclusively on Otto’s behalf, the poor young man might be in better health today.
Please say a prayer for this student and his family, and give a big THANK YOU to Trump for rescuing Americans!
