As we reported last week, President Donald Trump shocked the world As he took swift action against Bashar al Assad last week. Leaders from around the world went to microphones to show their support for President Trump. But the most surprising support has come from Obama’s former administration as reported by Politico.
Susan Glasser of Politico reported that, “Many of the most head-snapping comments I heard came from Obama’s own top advisers, who had long pushed him to confront Assad more aggressively and viewed his 2013 refusal to take military action against Syria after drawing a “red line” on chemical weapons use as a major American foreign policy debacle. There’s no love lost for Trump in this group, whose members found themselves in the uncomfortable position of cheering a leader they still both loathe and fear. As one former senior official of the Obama administration told me.Our administration never would have gotten this done in 48 hours. It’s a complete indictment of Obama.”
Anne-Marie Slaughter had served as Obama’s first-term chief of policy planning at the State Department and has been a long-time critic of Assad and encouraged President Obama to take action. She admitted, “I feel like finally we have done the right thing. The years of hypocrisy just hurt us all. It undermined the U.S., it undermined the world order.”
Slaughter, who has been one of Hillary Clinton’s greatest supporters even tweeted: “Donald Trump has done the right thing on Syria. Finally!! After years of useless handwringing in the face of atrocities.” When later asked if it was awkward to be cheering for Trump now. “I’m just glad to see it,” she said. “It was the right thing.”
Once again, President Trump has proven himself to be the “Not-Obama” President. He appears to be dead set to do everything that Obama didn’t do. National Security hands have been waiting to see what President Trump’s first foreign affairs move would be, well here it is.
