Trump has been receiving both criticism and praise over his decision to launch missiles at a Syrian air base.
The president did so in response to Assad’s alleged use of chemical weapons, but Congressmen like Sen. Rand Paul and Rep. Thomas Massie are stating that Trump should have gone to Congress before ordering the strike.
Others have praised the president’s bold choice, because it shows that America is once again a global power for stopping evil.
Even a few former critics of Trump, such as Sen. John McCain and Sen. Marco Rubio, have unexpectedly hopped aboard the Trump train. Now John Bolton, whom Trump passed over for Secretary of State, has demonstrated that there’s no hard feelings by hailing the president’s actions on several news programs.
The former ambassador to the United Nations praised Trump’s missile strike, saying it “was very measured, very precise” and that it was justified because of the “use of chemical weapons.”
“The message it sent around the world to potential adversaries was…something that needed to be heard.”
Bolton couldn’t be more right. North Korea has felt emboldened in recent months to perform missile launch tests, despite the fact that they’d repeatedly put on notice.
Now Trump is taking further action by moving our military to the Korean peninsula, letting dictator Kim Jong Un know once and for all that the Obama era of foreign policy is clearly over.
