Over one year into his presidency Trump blames Obama for latest Syria gas attack in Twitter blitz

Published

Well over one year into his presidency, Donald Trump on Sunday blamed former President Barack Obama for the latest gas attack in Syria that resulted in the deaths of dozens of women and children.

Following a week in which the President insisted the U.S. end involvement in Syria, pro-government forces and their allies attacked Douma, the last remaining rebel stronghold near the Syrian capital.

Trump was late to criticize the al-Assad government on Sunday morning, choosing instead to launch a broadside at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Washington Post, but when he did, he included, Obama.

“Many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria. Area of atrocity is in lockdown and encircled by Syrian Army, making it completely inaccessible to outside world. President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad. Big price to pay,” Trump tweeted.

He added, “Open area immediately for medical help and verification. Another humanitarian disaster for no reason whatsoever. SICK! If President Obama had crossed his stated Red Line In The Sand, the Syrian disaster would have ended long ago! Animal Assad would have been history!”

This gas attack was the second since Trump became President and he has done little about Syria in the intervening year.

‘This is not how words work’: Trump trashed after ranting that Roger Stone will be ‘exonerated’

Published

on

President Donald Trump went off on a strange rant after the sentence was handed down in the Roger Stone case.

Trump was supposed to be speaking about his new system of pardons which would pass down recommendations, but instead, he wanted to talk about those he felt should be prosecuted instead of Stone.

"But it happened to Roger Stone, and it happened to Gen. Flynn. and it happened to -- I won't name names," Trump continued during his Hope for Prisoners commencement address. "I know Roger but a lot of people know Roger. Everybody sort of knows Roger. And what happened to him is unbelievable. They say he lied. But other people lied, too. Just to mention [James] Comey lied. [Andrew] McCabe lied. Lisa Page lied. Her lover Strzok, Peter Strzok, lied. You don't know who these people are? Trust me. They all lied."
