I appear live on NBC Affilate Kare 11 in Minnepaolis at 10 p.m c.s.t President Trump just ordered airstrikes in Syria in retaliation for Syria's use of chemical weapons against civilians. This is really unprecedented for the Americans but an extrtaordinary shift for President Trump. Throughout his campaign, he argued directly against exactly this kind of a response. Further, as recently as the last 72 hours, his Secretary of State and his U.S. Ambassador the UN both said that the focus was going to be ISIS and not Assad. As a result, there is a lot of confusion as to whether this is a new policy or a one time thing.
Thanks is going to be an interesting conversation.
