TRUMP BLAMES SYRIAN CHEMICAL WEAPONS ATTACK ON PRESIDENT OBAMA

President Donald Trump said the suspected chemical attack in Syria “cannot be ignored by the civilized world” and blamed President Barack Obama’s administration for not standing up to Syrian President Bashar Assad in a statement Tuesday.

“These heinous actions by the Bashar al Assad regime are a consequence of the past administration’s weakness and irresolution,” Trump said.

“President Obama said in 2012 that he would establish a ‘red line,’ against the use of chemical weapons and then did nothing.”

The Syrian government is suspected of carrying out the attack in a rebel-held area of the country.

At least 58 people were killed in what would be one of the deadliest attacks of the six-year Syrian civil war, according to the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
