Donald Trump called for a missile strike last night on Syria after the chemical attacks on innocent civilians. Former Secretary of State and Trump’s rival during the 2016 elections, Hillary Clinton, bashed on Trump for taking action in Syria but still closing doors to their refugees.
The chemical attack on Syria killed at least 80 civilians, people that feared their lives everyday and had their worst nightmare come true. Trump signed an executive order that banned Syrian refugees from entering the country, a topic Clinton touched on at an event in Texas.
Clinton criticized Trump’s reluctance to admit Syrian refugees to the US.
“Look, Syria’s been a wicked problem for a very long time and the images of innocent people, of parents and especially children suffering in the aftermath of that most recent deadly gas attack were more appalling than I certainly can put into words,” Clinton said.
“It is essential that the world does more to deter Assad from committing future murderous atrocities,” she added. “But the action taken last night needs to be followed by a broader strategy to end Syria’s civil war and to eliminate ISIS strongholds on both sides of the border, so I hope this administration will move forward in a way that is both strategic and consistent with our values.”
“I also hope that they will recognize that we cannot in one breath speak of protecting Syrian babies and in the next close America’s doors to them,” she said.
