As the world begins to debrief itself from the events of last night’s airstrike against the brutal Bashar al-Assad in Syria, President Donald Trump is taking his fair share of both praise and scorn.
While no one is debating the fact that President Assad is nothing short of a monster for the use of illegal and unethical chemical weapons on Syrian civilians earlier in the week, there are some who believe that President Trump may have jumped too soon into the complicated conflict in the Middle East. Rand Paul, republican primary opponent of the President and son of libertarian icon Ron Paul, penned a stern editorial against Trump’s actions, stating unequivocally that congressional approval must be granted before military action of any kind is permitted.
Others are extremely concerned, and rightfully so, about the Russian response to the airstrikes. Not only has Russia been on the ground in Syria for years in their fight against ISIS, but they have aligned themselves rather precariously with Assad – something that American diplomats have long warned the Kremlin about.
Now, one young Twitter user is standing up for Donald Trump, claiming to have experienced the horrors of both Assad’s regime and the Russian occupation, and is openly thanking the American Commander in Chief for his heroic action.
