President Trump ordered a missile attack on a Syrian airbase!
The US bombing was in response to the chemical attack that took place on the people of Syria earlier in the week. The chemical attack was seen by some as an attack by Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad against people who were rebels against the Syrian government. A deadly nerve agent was used and it killed innocent civilians, including children and babies. After ordering the bombing, President Trump spoke to the people about his decision to take action. Reports have come out claiming that the Syrian government views the Trump's bombing as an "act of aggression" from the United States. Some criticize Trumps decision, especially since he was so vocal against former President Obama taking action in Syria without first gaining support from congress. Then he turned around and did the very thing that he warned Obama against.
Below, is a video from the aftermath of the chemical attack along with the Presidential Address from Donald Trump.
