…Is TRUMP accountable for anything…???
President Donald Trump on Wednesday said the recent chemical weapons attacks in Syria "crossed many, many lines beyond a red line" for him and assigned some blame for the violence to former President Barack Obama.
"It crossed a lot of lines for me," Trump told reporters at the White House. "When you kill innocent children, innocent babies, babies, little babies, with a chemical gas that is so lethal, people were shocked to hear what gas it was, that crosses many, many lines, beyond a red line. Many, many lines."
Trump, while acknowledging that he is now responsible for the American reaction to the chemical attacks, criticized Obama for not taking military action in Syria, even though Trump at the time had publicly urged the president not to do so.
"I think the Obama administration had a great opportunity to solve this crisis a long time ago when he said the red line in the sand," Trump said. "And when he didn’t 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."
