Perhaps the only thing crazier than believing Donald Trump made the decision to attack Syria because he saw sad pictures of gassed kids is Trump making the decision to attack Syria because his daughter saw sad pictures of gassed kids.
According to Trump’s son Eric, that’s exactly what happened.
From The Telegraph:
Donald Trump’s decision to launch a cruise missile attack on Syria proved he is not in league with Russia and will not be “pushed around” by Vladimir Putin, the US President’s son has told
The Daily Telegraph.
Eric Trump said his father was not intimidated by President Putin’s talk of war, and there would be “no-one harder” than President Trump if they “cross us”.
He also confirmed that President Trump’s decision to bomb a Syrian airbase to punish President
Bashar al-Assad for a nerve gas attack last week was influenced by the reaction of his sister
Ivanka, who said she was “heartbroken and outraged” by the atrocity.
Trump is a 70-year-old man. There’s no way he would do a bombing over some sad pictures of kids
broadcast all over the “fake news.”
Is our foreign policy really being determined by what makes Ivanka sad? This is literally the official story now. Whatever makes Ivanka sad, we will attack.
Everyone needs to send her sob stories of people killed by illegal immigrants and refugees.
Mr Trump’s son Eric, 33, who has taken over the running of his father’s property empire with his brother, Donald Jnr, warned Mr Putin his father was “deeply committed” to building what could be
the world’s largest ever peacetime military force as he is a “big believer” in Ronald Reagan’s
philosophy of achieving peace through strength.
Assad and Russia were achieving peace through strength in Syria. Bombing one of Assad’s airfields is working against this goal, even if he did use chemical weapons, which we’ve been given no evidence to confirm he did.
President Trump pledged to improve relations with Mr Putin during his campaign for the White House but his new administration has been plagued with allegations of close entanglements with Russian officials.
Eric Trump said his father was merely arguing that the US should try to be “best friends with other superpowers” if that was possible and described allegations of links with the Russian regime as “ridiculous”.
He said: “If there was anything that Syria did, it was to validate the fact that there is no Russia tie.”
There’s no validating this fact in liberals minds absent nuclear war.
Michael Moore was literally outraged Trump warned the Russians before bombing them to avoid WW3.
