16 Tweets Where Trump Attacked Obama for Doing Exactly What Trump is Doing in Syria Now

Tonight the inevitable happened. After reports of possibly heinous war crimes being committed by the Syrian government, after weeks and weeks of hostile propaganda coming from the United States and a completely incompetent government in perpetual disarray, Donald Trump announced that the United States would be bombing Syria. Donald Trump’s opinions on foreign policy have not always been so … hawkish. Let’s take a look back:


Why is Senator John McCain in Syria visiting with the rebels- MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

Why oh why indeed?

We should stay the hell out of Syria, the "rebels" are just as bad as the current regime. WHAT WILL WE GET FOR OUR LIVES AND $ BILLIONS?ZERO

I get it, stay out.

Why would anyone think Obama would attack Syria the day of his speech in Washington. He doesn't want to detract from his press & glory.

Interesting.

Why do we keep broadcasting when we are going to attack Syria. Why can't we just be quiet and, if we attack at all, catch them by surprise?

Huh. You don’t say?

That said, the rich Arab countries should get involved with the Syrian mess, not us.We should start rebuilding our own country & military.

About your non-existent infrastructure project?

We know you are but what are we?

What will we get for bombing Syria besides more debt and a possible long term conflict? Obama needs Congressional approval.

You might want to ask that question again but this time do it while staring in a mirror.

If Obama attacks Syria and innocent civilians are hurt and killed, he and the U.S. will look very bad!

When he’s right, he’s right.

The President must get Congressional approval before attacking Syria-big mistake if he does not!

Hey man, you know what? I totally agree with you.

"@mguarino64: @realDonaldTrump " How would you treat the Syria situation if president ?" I'd let them all fight with each other-focus on US!

Clearly. There are about fifty more of those. So I will leave you with a few more.

AGAIN, TO OUR VERY FOOLISH LEADER, DO NOT ATTACK SYRIA - IF YOU DO MANY VERY BAD THINGS WILL HAPPEN & FROM THAT FIGHT THE U.S. GETS NOTHING!

13 Syrian refugees were caught trying to get into the U.S. through the Southern Border. How many made it? WE NEED THE WALL!

...We negotiated a ceasefire in parts of Syria which will save lives. Now it is time to move forward in working constructively with Russia!

Thank you to @foxandfriends for the great timeline on all of the failures the Obama Administration had against Russia, including Crimea, Syria and so much more. We are now starting to win again!

Donald Trump bombing anyone serves one purpose and one purpose only—himself.
