President Trump said that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s chemical attack on his own people yesterday “crossed many, many lines” at a press conference with Jordanian King Abdullah II Wednesday.
The attack “crossed a lot of lines for me,” Trump said. “When you kill innocent children, innocent babies, little babies with a gas that is so lethal, people were shocked to hear what gas it was.”
“That crosses many, many lines, beyond a red line,” Trump said.
Trump had thus far been hesitant to condemn the Assad regime and its Russian allies. The President instead prioritized defeating radical Islamists engaged in the Syrian Civil War.
However, while Trump maintained his commitment to defeating radical Islam Wednesday, his press conference indicated a change in strategy toward the Syrian regime.
