Angry President Trump – Attitude Towards Syria, Assad Has Changed Very Much

trump syria speech


President Trump held an April 5th Rose Garden press briefing with Jordan’s King Abdullah II, focusing on the recent chemical weapons attack in Syria. He spoke to the depravity of such a strike which claimed innocent children as its victims.

President Trump pointed to yet another mess he’s been left to clean up by his feckless predecessor, saying,  “Well, I think the Obama administration had a great opportunity to solve this crisis a long time ago when he said the red line in the sand.”

Trump continued, “And when he didn’t cross that line after making the threat, I  think that set us back a long ways. Not only in Syria but in many other parts of the world, because it was a blank threat. I think it was something that was not one of our better days as a country, so I do feel that, Julie, I feel it very strongly.”

A determined President Trump answered her follow-up question, saying, “I now have responsibility and I will have that responsibility and carry it very proudly. It crossed a lot of lines for me. When you kill innocent children, innocent babies, 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.”

Trump warned, “And I will tell you that attack on children yesterday had a big impact on me, big impact. That was a horrible, horrible thing. And I’ve been watching it and seeing it and it doesn’t get any worse than that. And I have that flexibility and  it’s very, very possible, and I will tell you it’s already happened, that my attitude towards Syria and Assad has changed very much.” King Abdullah also added his comments to those of President Trump.

There’s no denying the event in Syria was a despicable and horrific act, but President Trump needs to make very certain that he is not being played by his adversaries, ultimately doing the work of ISIS and their globalist sponsors to complete the job of regime change that Obama was thwarted in carrying out. Another hellhole like Libya benefits no one but the Islamists.

The type of atrocity that was carried out upon these people is no more horrific than the 240 killed in Mosul, a loss of life that the US had taken responsibility for and which now appears to have been the handiwork of ISIS.

ZeroHedge reported on March 27th, “Two days after the US military confirmed that a coalition airstrike may have killed as many as 240 civilians in a March 17 Mosul air raid, the Pentagon found an unexpected defender when the Iraqi military said on Sunday a blast that killed scores of civilians in western Mosul was triggered by an Islamic State booby trap, contradicting local officials and residents who claimed a U.S.-led coalition airstrike caused the deaths.”

The very same type of thing could easily be happening in Syria. The callous disregard for life is an ISIS trademark. It’s important that he not allow himself to be manipulated by those seeking to involve us in another “very profitable” exploit overseas that has world-changing consequences, particularly as the unwitting pawn of either ISIS or the establishment war-mongers.

  1. Emailed to White House:

    Re: Chemical incident at Khan Shaykhun

    Well-informed sources have reported that a workshop used for fitting rockets with poisonous gas payloads exploded in Khan Shaykhun, killing or wounding the workshop’s personnel and causing a release of toxic substances that injured nearby civilians. The workshop was under the control of mercenary forces and was probably attacked by Syrian air forces.

    If this report is true, the accusation of Syrian President Assad having attacked Syrians with chemical weapons is false. President Trump needs to be made aware of this.

    It is always best to avoid any rush to judgment in cases of foreign matters. Full factual and provable evidence should be gathered before accusations are made.

    Let me know if you need more details to corroborate this statement.

  2. Best wait for Columbo to file his report.

  3. Assad was not responsible for the last chemical and I don’t believe he’s responsible for this one. Obama’s rebels already admitted responsibility for the last chemical attack. I thoroughly distrust those who are advising President Trump and fear the swamp is still is still in seeping into the White House.

  4. Since Assad was not behind the previous gassing attack, but his enemies were, trying to pin it on him, why shouldn’t the assumption this time be on the same perps???

    Come ON, Donald. You can see the lay of the land here better than that. Assad had nothing to gain by such an act. But his enemies sure did. And they have proved to be above NOTHING, in the pursuit of their ends. ‘Whatever It Takes…By All Means Necessary’: the philosophy of such as Saul ‘Rules for Radicals’ Alinsky.

  5. It’s tempting to think Trump is being led to his slaughter, but then I remember how many times he played the media and his other opponents. I don’t want to give up yet, but OMG how murky the waters are with all the facets and players in this “game of life”. It’s scary because nothing is as it seems.

  6. Trump is rapidly running over into the loser column. Our only hope is for China and Russia to straighten him out. Where are his advisers? Is he simply not listening to them? Or, have they been totally co-opted by the establishment? Does he really trust Ryan and Priebus? Wow.

      I’m not liking what I’ve seen lately, no way he can be this blind, which makes it even more unsettling.

  7. Tell me of one shred of evidence that ever supported the allegations that Assad attacked his people with chemical weapons. Beginning in March of 2011, Syria was invaded by the West. NEVER has he attacked his citizens.

  8. Goldbug, I’m with you 100%. Trump has been conquered by the military-industrial crowd. McCain and friends have won. Send congratulatory notes to Lindsey Graham.

    Use of chemical weapons would incur massive strategic risk to Assad. He knows that any use of chemical weapons would assuredly:

    Bring the U.S. down on him. Make it difficult for the Russians to continue support him thus threatening his vital re-supply line.
    Completely isolate him on the geopolitical stage – he becomes damaged goods.
    Result in the loss of the moral high-ground. No longer could he argue to be protecting his civilian population from foreign jihadis and the islamic state.

    The rapid resort to unsupported accusations by Trump is a strong indication that he has become controlled by the establishment apparatus and he has abandoned his supporters. Add this to his attack on the Freedom Caucus, and you have a failed Presidency. Such an effing shame.

  9. I suppose, since the warmongers told Trump that Assad did it, he will believe it, hook, line and sinker, without any investigation whatsoever. Pray tell, what would Assad’s motive be? Just felt like gassing a few people .. just wanted to p.o. someone? It is obvious, at this point, that the new Swamp Cabinet has swamped Trump. He’s now hopped onto the War Wagon. My enthusiasm for MAGA is waning.
