Trump showed that he was from “cozy” with Russia when he ordered a missile strike on a Syrian airbase, Thursday night.
Rollowing reports that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad launched a chemical weapons attack on his own civilians, Sen. Tim Kaine told CNN that he thought President Trump was too “cozy” with Russia to criticize Assad about during an interview on Wednesday.
“I worry they are trying to be cozy with Russia — so cozy with Russia that they are unwilling to call out Russia’s henchman, Bashar al-Assad, who is only able to carry out these atrocities because of the support from the Russians and the Iranians,” Kaine told CNN’s, Alisyn Camerota.
Fast forward to Thursday night when President Trump ordered the U.S. military to launch 59 Tomahawk missiles at the Syrian airbase that was responsible for launching the horrific chemical weapons attack.
Trump did more than just deliver a harsh condemnation of the attack. He took action, something the Obama administration refused to do for years.
House Minority Leader Nacy Pelosi (D-CA), who has been a harsh critic of Trump’s alleged ties to Russia, called the strike a “proportional response to the regime’s use of chemical weapons.”
Kaine has yet to apologize for his inaccurate assessment of the president’s independence and willingness to act.
