Almost 48 hours after 59 missiles rained down on Syria, leaving mass destruction and a strong message for the country’s dictator, Syrians still suffering under the Assad regime have just responded with a message of their own. In a strange turn of events, they have all begun changing their profile pictures on social media to one of President Trump which has a hidden message on it that cannot be ignored.
Since the unexpected counter attack to President Bashar al-Assad using chemical weapons on his people, we have heard from a Syrian activist now living in the states, who escaped the wrath after the first attack, as well as a little girl who was evacuated to Turkey. Both shared the same grateful sentiment for our president standing taking action against Assad, after eight years of a do-nothing leader. Now, we know how a big majority of others controlled by the only leadership they know feel and it’s not at all the same.
While Americans bicker over the military action taken against this terroristic criminal and criticize our own president for actually following through on his campaign promises, Syrians are singing Trump’s praises as they finally feel America is back, despite what U.S. citizens believe. To show their deep appreciation for Trump coming to their defense, Syrians are showing solidarity for our Commander-in-Chief by replacing their profile picture with one of him that says “We love you” in Arabic on it. However, not everyone feels the same.

There is still a good number of Assad supporters who claim all Trump by bombing them was made “ISIS great again.” On the other side of the positive Trump pictures, are people who changed their profiles to an ISIS flag with Trump’s face on it. Others took it even further, as UNILAD reports:
“Other Twitter users also changed their profile pictures to a blank yellow box to represent toxic gas, with others chose to display the radioactive warning symbol, as a mark of respect for those killed.”

ISIS-supporting Assad lovers are probably struggling with the power shift now that Trump is in charge and won’t be funding them anymore like Barack Obama did. America has tip-toed around terrorists for far too long and now it’s time to start dropping bombs on the problem.
