Trump Is 'The Best American President,' Syrian Leader Bashar al-Assad Says: 'What Do We Want More than a Transparent Foe?'
By David Brennan On 11/1/19 at 9:39 AM EDT


Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has praised President Donald Trump as America's best commander in chief, though not for reasons that would encourage Americans.

Assad made the comments during an interview broadcast on Syrian state television. In a clip tweeted out by NBC News, the dictator explained that Trump's unusual level of honesty is beneficial for America's adversaries, including the Assad regime.

He told the interviewer that his comments "might seem strange," but nonetheless said Trump is "the best American president."

"Why? Not because his policies are good," Assad added. "But because he's the most transparent president."

"All American presidents commit crimes and end up taking the Nobel Peace Prize and appear as a defender of human rights, and the 'unique' and 'brilliant' American or Western principles," he claimed.

"But all they are is a group of criminals who only represent the interests of the American lobbies of large corporations in weapons, oil and others."

Assad remains in control of Syria despite the country's devastating civil war, which began in 2011 when he ordered a brutal crackdown on protesters demanding democratic reforms.
