President Trump responded to the brutal gas attack in Syria that left scores of innocent children dead. He said that it crosses many lines.
“It crossed a lot of lines for me. When you kill innocent children, innocent babies, little babies, with a chemical gas that is so lethal, people were shocked to hear what gas it was, that crosses many, many lines, beyond a red line, many, many lines,” he said.
When asked what his response to the Syrian ruler Assad will be, Trump responded with “You will see.”
President Trump is in a very difficult situation in Syria. The Assad regime is controlled and backed by Russia. Any aggression can lead to heightened tensions and perhaps war.
We will see in the coming days how Trump decides to play this.
