BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Yeah, so if you think about this, you know the president is enraged on this. And for those people who think, “Well, the president just says whatever he thinks and tweets whatever and doesn't care about the ramifications,” when it comes to international affairs, things that nationally impact the country, he was measured. He was keeping his cards to himself. He's going to let his people behind the scenes ratchet up the pressure. Because you know he feels for this [Otto Warmbier's] family. You know that he's had personal interaction with this family. You know that he can really relate to a young man at that age with his array of children that he's had and the empathy that he's shown throughout the campaign. And I think behind the scenes the pressure's going to really increase.
