Over the weekend several major media outlets began reporting that there had been a chemical attack in the rebel-held city of Douma in Syria.
The attack reportedly killed more than 70 people, including women and children, while wounding dozens more innocent Syrians.
Now the question is did the Syrian government carry out this attack? And did the Russians give them permission to do so?
These disturbing questions are causing quite a bit of consternation in the Trump administration, and one Senator believes that the way Trump answers these questions could define his Presidency.
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) made an appearance on ABC to speak with Martha Raddatz about the trouble in Syria.
“It’s a defining moment in his presidency because he has challenged Assad in the past to not use chemical weapons. We had a one and done missile attack, so Assad’s at it again. They see us, our resolve breaking, they see our determination to stay in Syria waning, and it’s no accident they used chemical weapons but President Trump can reset the table here.
If it becomes a tweet without meaning, then he’s hurt himself on North Korea. If he doesn’t follow through and live up to that tweet, he’s going to look weak in the eyes of Russia and Iran. So this is a defining moment, Mr. President, you need to follow through with that tweet, show a resolve that Obama never did to get this right.”
