more Trump Alternate Reality: ASSad's gas attack is Obama's fault, when Trump has repeatedly said

[font size="3"]. HE has no interest in doing anything about ASSad... Assad was emboldened to commit his gas attack BECAUSE of Trump's oft repeated lack of interest in acting against Assad (or Assad's protector Russia). Trump: “I would have stayed out of Syria." [font]

In more than a dozen messages on Twitter in 2013 and 2014, Mr. Trump repeated his advice, emphatically stating that “Syria is NOT our problem,” appealing directly to Mr. Obama to “not attack Syria” as “there is no upside and tremendous downside” and telling him to “stay out of Syria.”

[font size="3"]Mr. Trump had a noninterventionist stance during the 2016 election.[/font]

Mr. Trump shrugged at calls to use force against Mr. Assad’s government and endorsed Russia’s support of the Syrian leader.

“You have Russia that’s now there. Russia’s on the side of Assad, and Russia wants to get rid of ISIS as much as we do, if not more, because they don’t want them coming into Russia,” Mr. Trump said in a September 2015 interview with CNN. “Let Syria and ISIS fight. Why do we care?”

In a May 2016 interview on MSNBC, Mr. Trump said the United States had “bigger problems than Assad.” He added, “I would have stayed out of Syria and wouldn’t have fought so much for Assad, against Assad.”
