Trump’s Full Statement On U.S. Missile Attack On Syria

The U.S. has launched a devastating missile strike against a Syrian military field in response to allegations the Syrian regime launched a chemical weapons attack.

NBC News is reporting Thursday evening that the U.S. military has launched a missile strike against the al-Shayrat military airfield, with CNN also confirming that 50 Tomahawk cruise missiles were used in the attack.

President Donald Trump said he ordered the attack in response to Syria President Bashar Assad’s alleged involvement in a chemical attack that led to more than 100 deaths in the country earlier this week.

Below are the president’s full statement on his decision to order the assault:

On Tuesday, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad launched a horrible chemical attack on innocent civilians using a deadly nerve agent.

Assad choked out the lives of helpless men, women and children. It was a slow and brutal death for so many. Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered at this very barbaric attack. No child of God should ever suffer such horror.

Tonight, I ordered a targeted military strike on the airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched. It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons. There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention and ignored the urging of the UN Security Council.

Numerous previous attempts at changing Assad’s behavior have all found and failed very dramatically. As a result, the refugee crisis continues to deepen and the region continues to destabilize, threatening the United States and its allies.

Tonight I call on all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syrian and also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types. We asked for God’s wisdom as we face the challenge of our very troubled world. We pray for the lives of the wounded and for the souls of those who passed. And we hope as long as America stands for justice and peace and harmony will in the end prevail.

Good night and God Bless America and the entire world.

In case you missed it, Trump said the following 4 words about Syria. He said that it is:

A “Vital National Security Interest”
Do you stand by president Trump!

Mr. Trump, I have been praying for the situation in Syria for some time. Yesterday afternoon I began praying for you and the soldiers who were carrying out this attack. This morning I am so happy. I am proud to see some of your enemies standing up for this decision. You election and choice of cabinet members were the first step to get our country back. This decision is the second step to have you respected around the world. Thank you and your family for “giving up your wealthy life style” to “straighten out” our country. I admire all of you tremendously. Your wife and Ivanka are outstanding examples for females around the world.

assuage needs to know what it is like to die from a deadly gas he can’t see and to suffer from the hideous mustard gas or whatever other gases he uses on his own people.

As a follow up, target the Assad at his headquarters and residence. Do it for national security.
