Donald Trump recently visited with Jordanian King Abdullah II. The King and his wife visited the White House as many foreign dignitaries have. The First Lady and the President greeted them upon their arrival. Shortly after their arrival, the media was set ablaze with pictures and videos of Syrian children being attacked by chemical weapons.
The President held a press conference on the lawn of the White House where he answered questions from the media while Jordanian King Abdullah II stood by and listened. He partially blamed the former administration. The former administration placed a red line in the sand when it comes to chemical attacks back in August of 2012 and then backed down from the promise and didn’t enforce them.
The President argued this led to the recent attacks against innocent bystanders in Syria. The President said the following,
“A long time ago when he said the red line in the sand, when he did not cross that line after making the threat, I think that set us back a long ways, not only in Syria but in many other parts of the world because it was a blank threat. I think it was something that was not one of our better days as a country. I now have responsibility, and I will have that responsibility and carry it very proudly. I will tell you that. It is now my responsibility.”
The King tried interjecting his own comment when reporters were calling on him but the President cut him off to say the following,
“The world is a mess. I inherited a mess.”

The President was right to accept responsibility for what is happening now but also admitting that current circumstances were dictated by past decisions. The President will not allow these egregious actions to go unnoticed and unpunished. The Assad regime has zero conscious and they are not only a threat to their own people but to humanity.
The world will be a better place once they are ousted and prosecuted. There is no better person to do that than Donald Trump. He has the fortitude, the attitude, and the stamina to follow through with his promises, unlike the last President. President Trump will not let the world or this country down.
