Trump is taking serious criticism for making the military moves former President Obama refused to make.
Last night, President Trump ordered an airstrike on a Syrian base in response to Syrian President Bashar Assad’s barbaric chemical weapons attack on his own citizens.
“There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention and ignored the urging of the U.N. Security Council,” Trump said.
“Tonight, I call on all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria and also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types.”
Although some liberals are upset with the bold move, the Syrian people could not be more grateful.
As a Syrian and Assad chemical weapons massacre survivor I want to thank @POTUS for striking the dictator, you gave us hope god bless u Sir!

“I was overwhelmed, I felt grateful for President Trump, I felt grateful for the United States”, Kassem said.
Zakaria shares the same opinion with many other civilians in the war-torn Middle Eastern country, that this counter attack was a long-time coming and they’re glad someone finally stepped in to stop it from happening again. When speaking to The Telegraph, Zakaria put it his response in the simplest of terms promising to name his son Donald if he has one adding that “This man is a hero. He has balls.”
Our president felt the pain of these innocent people and acted, That is what a true leader does.
