New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof, a noted critic of President Trump, praised his decision to launch cruise missiles at chemical weapons targets in Syria Thursday, calling it “the right thing to do.”

“I start off, frankly, with a deep suspicion of almost anything President Trump does,” Kristof said. “In this case, I think that this was the right thing.”

Kristof emphasized the importance of enforcing international law regarding the use of chemical weapons.

A frequent critic of the President, Kristof said the attack held “dubious legality.”

“I think it was also somewhat hypocritical given Trump’s previous comments about Syria, his opposition to strikes very much like this. I think it raises all kinds of difficulties ahead,” Kristof added.

Despite all those reservations, Kristof said the strike “was absolutely the right thing to do.”
