Donald Trump Vows 'We're Not Going Into Syria' (VIDEO)

Source: Talking Points Memo


By CAITLIN MACNEAL Published APRIL 12, 2017, 10:15 AM EDT

President Donald Trump on Tuesday tried to clarify his administration's policy toward Syria after ordering missile strikes on a Syrian air base last week in response to a chemical attack.

"We’re not going into Syria because you know there were some questions,” Trump told Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo. “But when I see people using horrible, horrible chemical weapons—which they agreed not to use under the Obama administration, but they violated it."

Trump's policy toward Syria was unclear following Thursday's strikes, with members of his administration offering slightly different explanations for how the President would proceed going forward. Trump on Tuesday said that his administration would not get involved in Syria, but did not define exactly what that meant.

"Are we going to get involved with Syria? No," he told Fox Business. "But if I see them using gas and using things that—I mean, even some of the worst tyrants in the world didn’t use the kind of gases that they used."

You remember, you put boots on the ground in Syria 4 weeks ago, president fuckwit?

Then right after that, your buddy Putin's flunky called them hostile foreign invaders, put a target on their backs.

Now, you forgot they're even there.

4. Another Blame Obama" meme

“But when I see people using horrible, horrible chemical weapons—which they agreed not to use under the Obama administration, but they violated it."


Maybe if the Congress had given constant he would have done a better job bombing the shit out of the base. 'Cause, their locked and loaded and hit targets from hundreds of miles away.

Oh God. We're probably going in.

6. No, the 45 policy towards Syria is very clear....

It is a tool to deflect from the Russia collusion investigation. Nothing more, nothing less....no matter how much fake squabbling there appears to be between the White House and the Kremlin.

7. Blah, blah, blah, all sound and fury signifying absolutely nothing.

Word spew is all we get from this lying, criminal jerk. Everything is situational with him and he has no foundation, other than personal profit and retaliation. Those are the only things in the entire world that he cares about. Everything else is just feelings of the moment or pure lies for manipulation purposes. Syria and Susan Rice below in the later categories, both done solely to distract and stop his treason from coming fully to light.
