Trump said the ‘horrible, horrible’ sarin gas attack that killed small children and ‘beautiful babies’ had a ‘big impact’ on him and he was changing his position about the Syrian President after saying last week it was no longer a ‘priority’ to get Assad out.
Trump did not disclose his plans for possible military action but did declare ‘flexibility”
When asked if he would take new action, Trump said “You will see.”
The Mail Online reports:
Trump upped the ante in a Rose Garden press conference after having said earlier in the day that the the chemical weapons attack is a ‘terrible affront to humanity.’
‘My attitude toward Syria and Assad has changed very much,’ Trump declared, suggesting with the statement that he may be reconsidering his directive to US diplomats to take their focus off removing Bashar al-Assad from power.
The ‘horrible, horrible’ sarin gas attack that killed small children and ‘beautiful babies’ had a ‘big impact’ on the president, who declared Wednesday that the attack ‘crossed a lot of lines.’
‘When you kill innocent children, innocent babies…with a chemical gas that is so lethal…that crosses many, many lines. Beyond a red line,’ Trump said, making reference to Barack Obama’s infamous 2012 threat to Assad.

DAMASCUS, SYRIA (0:45 A.M.) – On Thursday evening, two US Navy battleships were put on high-alert in the eastern Mediterranean Sea as Donald Trump was set to met with military advisors in Florida on Friday in response to a recent chemical massacre in Khan Sheikhoun, Idlib.
According to a report, the USS Ross and USS Porter guided-missile destroyers neared the coast of Syria in what appears to be a drastic escalation.
In a press conference this evening, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said “steps are underway” on an international coalition to pressure Bashar Assad from power, as President Trump was being briefed on military options for Syria.
America’s top diplomat addressed the Syria crisis a day after Trump declared in the Rose Garden that the chemical strike would not be tolerated.
Tillerson pointedly said Russia should “consider carefully” its support for the Syrian government, while calling for an international effort to defeat ISIS in Syria, stabilize the country and ultimately work with partners through a political process that leads to Assad leaving power.
On Thursday, McCain and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., issued a joint statement asserting that “the latest use of chemical weapons” requires action, calling for Trump to take out Syria’s air force.
