Measured Response: “I cannot applaud President Trump more. This was a measured, proportional response and I think it was decisive. It is exactly what people around the world have been calling for the last few years. The heads of state I have met with over the last two years as a former member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee have all been requesting this. They have been telling us that what we need is a president that will lead. This shows the world that chemical weapons are not going to be permitted.”

Time For Assad To Go: “President Trump acted decisively on something he spoke out earlier in the week about. We are not going to tolerate the use of weapons of mass destruction and chemical weapons in Syria. It is time for Bashar al-Assad to go. We have got to get in there and defeat ISIS and get Syria rebuilt.”

Concerted Effort Needed: “What we need is a concerted effort on the part of many countries to get behind a practice of a strategy here to get rid of Bashar al-Assad, solve this civil war inside Syria, defeat ISIS and get Syria started on the long journey of being rebuilt. We have to solve this and get these people back home.”
