The Obama administration would move mountains if it were a academic, basketball, football, or any celebrity whom were taken. Their only motivation was press coverage. But, since Otto was just only a plain folk American, strategic patience brought nada. Unlike the Obama administration, the Trump administration went to work to bring their son home and will get not one word of credit in main stream media.

FRED WARMBIER: When Otto was first taken, we were advised by the past administration to take a low profile while they worked to obtain his release. We did so without result. Earlier this year, Cindy and I decided the time for strategic patience was over.
We made a few media appearances and traveled to Washington to meet with [Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Korea and Japan] Ambassador Joe Yun at the State Department.
It is my understanding that Ambassador Yun and his team, at the direction of the president aggressively pursued resolution of the situation.
They have our thanks for bringing him home.
