President Donald Trump recently had a meeting with King Abdullah II of Jordan.
During the meeting, Trump learned about the chemical attacks against Syrian children by the country’s own president.
Without wasting any time, Trump immediately discussed the incident with the media and made it clear that he would take action.
Trump was quick to blame former President Barack Obama for being a coward in the Middle East and for not challenging Syria and their use of chemical weapons.
“A long time ago when he said the red line in the sand, when he did not cross that line after making the threat, I think that set us back a long ways, not only in Syria but in many other parts of the world because it was a blank threat. I think it was something that was not one of our better days as a country. I now have responsibility, and I will have that responsibility and carry it very proudly. I will tell you that. It is now my responsibility,” said Trump.
Abdullah tried to cut Trump off, but he would have none of it.
“The world is a mess. I inherited a mess,” said Trump.

Trump certainly did inherit a mess from Obama. Unlike Obama, Trump has a spine and is willing to challenge dictators in the Middle East that are willing to hurt innocent women and children.
