Trump supporters criticize his decision to attack Syria

President Trump’s decision to launch an attack on Syria Friday night has prompted some of his prominent supporters to speak out against the action.

“Assume Assad used chlorine gas. Is it worth starting a war? Overthrowing Assad results in chaos. Thousands die. We might see genocide of one of the last Christian communities in the Mideast. Does it make us safer? Region more stable? How’d regime change in Iraq & Libya end up?” Fox News’ Tucker Carlson tweeted.

Fellow network host Laura Ingraham also expressed skepticism about the mission, saying, “I guess it feels good because there are horrible things happening there. But what do we really accomplish here tonight in Syria? This is not why Donald Trump got elected.”

Meanwhile, conservative personality Michael Savage tweeted, “We lost. War machine bombs Syria. No evidence Assad did it. Sad warmongers hijacking our nation.”

According to Politico, this dissent among the right stems from Trump’s pledge to put “America First” and keep the U.S. out of the conflicts of other countries.

However, he decided to participate in multilateral airstrikes against Syria as retaliation against President Bashar al-Assad’s alleged chemical attack on his own people.
