A response to chemical weapons attack

Earlier this evening, President Donald Trump took to the podium to solemnly share with us that the United States, along with the U.K. and France are engaged in joint strike force attacks in Syria. This comes in response to egregious actions taken by President Bashar Hafez al-Assad's administration against his own people. Chemical attacks were carried out on April 7th, resulting in the terrible suffering of Syrian natives.

President Trump's administration has been very deliberate in their consideration of the proper response to this tragedy, working to ensure that the appropriate actions were taken in view of the larger international community. He has called upon Russia and Iran to reconsider their support of the Assad regime. He has also challenged the nations in the Middle East to step up their own support of the eradication of evil in the forms of tyranny, radical Islam, and terrorism.
