Trump on Syria: ‘What I Did Should Have Been Done by the Obama Administration’
President Trump spoke with Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo today and in a preview clip that aired on FBN this afternoon, he talked about his decision to take action in Syria.
He said at the top of the clip, “We’re not going into Syria.”
However, Trump went on to say, “What I did should have been done by the Obama administration a long time before I did it, and… I think Syria would be a lot better off right now than it has been.”
As you are no doubt aware, back in 2013 the president held a very different view of what should be done in Syria:
President Obama, do not attack Syria. There is no upside and tremendous downside. Save your “powder” for another (and more important) day!
