MUST WATCH: Jake Tapper Just DESTROYED Trump On National Television

Donald Trump never seems to make up his mind. During his campaign last year, Trump criticized President Obama for not acting on the so-called red line that Syria crossed in 2012 when they attacked their own people with chemical weapons.

But back in 2013 Trump had a different view on the same subject, as he urged Obama not to act on the red-line.

Now, after the recent chemical attacks on civilians, Trump decided to put the blame on Obama for the attacks.

“I think the Obama administration had a responsibility to solve the crisis a long time ago,” Trump said of his predecessor’s approach to the Syrian regime. “And when he didn’t cross that line in 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.”

CNN’s Jake Tapper decided to share a few words about the president’s credibility for making such statement about Obama.

“Faulting President Obama, of course, for not acting against Assad after the red line threat is a perfectly legitimate criticism, but can President Trump credibly make it?”

Trump has now changed his tune on Syria, saying that the chemical attack “crossed a lot of lines.”

“It crossed a lot of lines for me,” the president said during a Rose Garden news conference on Wednesday with Jordan’s King Abdullah. “When you kill innocent children, innocent babies, little babies, with a chemical gas that is so lethal that people were shocked to hear what gas it was, that crosses many, many lines, beyond a red line, many many lines.”
