The Essential Pundit Take: 'Trump Became President' by Bombing Syria

But Democrats are now trying to use Mr. Trump's decision to retaliate against the Syrian government's gas attack on its own people to rally political opposition against his executive order temporarily barring refugees from the United States. She got a lightning-fast rejoinder from CNN's Jake Tapper, who asked if she didn't see any "disconnect" between that sentiment and President Donald Trump's attempts to ban Syrian refugees.

The U.S. launched a missile strike late Thursday in response to a chemical attack earlier this week that officials said was conducted by Syrian President Bashar Assad's military.

In an exclusive interview, one Syrian father tells Action News Jax he hopes President Donald Trump's airstrike Thursday night marks a new beginning. She called for the administration to immediately revoke its position on refugees.

The Justice Department, which is defending the executive order in court, declined to comment Friday on whether there have been any discussions of altering the policy.

"I felt grateful for President Trump". "This would be a great opportunity for the president to reconsider his previous statements and to think about the fact that these refugees are fleeing precisely the type of violence we are seeing this week in Syria", says Jennifer Sime, a senior vice president of the International Rescue Committee's United States programs.

There's no change on the refugee issue, despite the US attack on Syria. But his administration is now battling barriers in court as it tries to carry out his executive order barring Syrian refugees from entering the U.S. During his presidential campaign, he called such a ban "a matter of terrorism".

If Trump's strike on Syria was meant to curtail Assad's ability to launch more attacks on civilians, it does not seem to have worked. Please support our efforts.
