Except actions don’t always equal rhetoric.
Rules of engagement.
“[I]n recent weeks, Trump has privately expressed regret for choosing McMaster.”
“This method bears the signature of the regime, and that is what has allowed us to establish its responsibility in this attack.”
“These sweeping sanctions target the scientific support center for Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad’s horrific chemical weapons attack…”
“I am, like, the happiest dude in America right now.”
“There was nothing that was going to stop Assad from killing our families…”
Gas attacks? No, we’re feeling fine, thank you.
Here we go.
“…part of an immediate review of all intelligence in the hours after the attack”
Attack claims “100% fabrication.”
“I said it was obsolete. It’s no longer obsolete.”
“…the runway is of idle military interest.”
Just asking questions.
“The dossier refutes the Russian claim that the attack was on an opposition-held chemical weapons depot.”
“This distinction does not much matter to the dead …”
“the presence of the surveillance drone over the hospital couldn’t have been a coincidence…”
“It’s a complete indictment of Obama.”
Trump approval: 43/49.
101,300 gross tons of persuasion.
CNN also tried to bait him into slamming Trump…it turned out poorly.
Regime change: Yes or no?
What could possibly go wrong?
