Countless people have been brutally murdered in Syria war crimes. President Trump’s military strike on their chemical weapons saved many lives.

Let’s be clear. Assad’s most recent use of poison gas against the people of Douma was not his first, second, third, or even 49th use of chemical weapons. United States estimates that Assad has used chemical weapons in the Syrian war at least 50 times. So you have a UN member, who has used chemical weapons. You have a country, Russia, who’s helped them cover up chemical weapons. And we have a violation of international law. So what else are we supposed to do?
And then another chemical weapons attack happens. And here they’re going to attempt to say it’s fake? At some point, you have to do something. At some point you have to say, “Enough.”
We saw what happened in Salisbury. This is a renewed effort to bring chemical weapons back into the mainstream. And we can’t let that happen. As a mother of two children, as a wife of a combat veteran, I am unbelievably proud of how President Trump has looked at the information, analyzed, and not let anyone rush him into this. Because he has said from the beginning, “We have to know that we’re right. We have to know all the information. We have to know that there’s proof. And we have to know that we’re taking every precaution necessary should we take action.”
Syria War Crimes
There have been many human rights violations in Syria. Nearly half a million Syrians have been killed. Additionally, more than ten million fled their homes. The international community blames Assad for gassing his own people with chlorine gas. The UN confirmed that rebel groups in the war had used the sarin nerve agent gas as a weapon against the Syrian government. There are many Syria war crimes that are taking place. The question is, when will they stop?
