The U.N. Ambassador said the president’s Syria strike deterred the further use of chemical weapons.
U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley told the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Wednesday that President Trump “saved many innocent men, women, and children” with his air strike on a Syrian air base in April.
“Due to the president’s actions, we did not see an incident,” Haley said.
The White House had said that Syrian military activity indicated another chemical attack would be imminent, and warned the Assad regime that another attack would provoke an American response.
“What we did see before was all of the same activity that we had seen prior [to] the April 4 chemical weapons attack,” she said. “I would like to think that the president saved many innocent men, women, and children [with his warnings].”
