The Washington Post’s David Ignatius said that he thought President Trump’s strike on the Syrian airbase responsible for launching chemical weapons attacks had restored American credibility abroad during a panel discussion on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Friday morning.
“I think [President Trump] found the consequences of embracing Assad…just too horrifying. I thought the president was sincere in saying, looking at those photographs of the little children choking to death as they died was abhorrent,” Ignatius told the panel.
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough asked Ignatius to explain the difference between the first time Syrian President Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons and the second time.
“Joe, we’ve had in the last four years a lesson in the credibility of what American power is,” Ignatius told Scarborough.
Ignatius then explained how President Obama’s drawing a red line in Syria and not enforcing it had damaged American credibility abroad.
“Donald Trump has restored the credibility of American power,” Ignatius said of Trump’s Thursday night order.
