In 2013, President Obama wanted to use military action to respond to Syria after the President of Syria used chemical weapons. Trump took to twitter to harshly criticize the notion of taking military action.
We should stay the hell out of Syria, the “rebels” are just as bad as the current regime. WHAT WILL WE GET FOR OUR LIVES AND $ BILLIONS?ZERO

What will we get for bombing Syria besides more debt and a possible long term conflict? Obama needs Congressional approval.

If Obama attacks Syria and innocent civilians are hurt and killed, he and the U.S. will look very bad!

If the U.S. attacks Syria and hits the wrong targets, killing civilians, there will be worldwide hell to pay. Stay away and fix broken U.S.

What I am saying is stay out of Syria.

Obama must now start focusing on OUR COUNTRY, jobs, healthcare and all of our many problems. Forget Syria and make America great again!

Despite the criticism he levied against Obama for wanting to strike Syria in response to a chemical attack, less than 100 days into his presidency, Trump got involved in Syria by using military strikes in response to a chemical weapons attack.
