As you know, John McCain never misses an opportunity to slam President Trump.
Now, McCain actually pins the Syrian chemical attack on President Trump. According to him, Trump is the one to blame for the Syrian chemical attack.
Washington Examiner reported that Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. believes the Trump administration is “partially to blame” for prompting the Syrian regime to carry out chemical attacks against citizens last Tuesday. Watch video (08:18).
“I think it probably was partially to blame,” McCain told CBS “Face the Nation” host John Dickerson when asked if the Trump administration’s public statements encouraged the Syrian President.
McCain also said Tillerson’s comment on ISIS and Syria is a flawed strategy. Tillerson said that the U.S. is focused on wiping out the Islamic State before stabilizing Syria.
“We believe that the first priority is the defeat of ISIS. That by defeating ISIS and removing their caliphate from their control, we’ve now eliminated at least — or minimized a particular threat not just to the United States, but to the whole stability in the region,” Tillerson told CBS “Face the Nation” host John Dickerson.
Tillerson also added, “And once the ISIS threat has been reduced or eliminated, I think we can turn our attention directly to stabilizing the situation in Syria. We’re hopeful that we can prevent a continuation of the civil war and that we can bring the parties to the table to begin the process of political discussions.”
