Here's a report from 2013 when President Obama sought to LEGALLY bomb Syria after Assad's chemical weapons attack on his own people.
The GOP controlled Congress said a firm NO! to President Obama's request for Congressional authorization for military action, which is required by the Constitution.
Four years later, Republican so-called president Trump, who tweeted and railed against then President Obama's plans to send missiles to Syria, did EXACTLY what he told President Obama not to do; and then Trump sent missiles on a bombing mission WITHOUT Congressional authorization.
The corrupt Republicans are nothing more than political hacks, not interested in governing nor in Constitutional law, but only in wielding power - even if their head of state is a lying, cheating, con man. As long as he has a fake "R" after his name, Trump will get away with breaking laws and doing whatever he and the mendacious, cowardly thugs in the GOP will let him.
Ezra Klein of VOX discusses Trump's foreign policy -- or lack thereof.
Also this from Digby: Trump's words mean nothing.
