2Way – Diana Darke on the U.S. Strike on Syria
SULLIVAN: Last night, President Trump ordered a strike on a Syrian airbase. This was in response to President Bashar al-Assad’s gas attack that killed 80 Syrian civilians on Wednesday. He addressed the nation from his estate in Mar-a-Lago late last night, calling Assad’s actions “barbaric,” and criticizing the way Syria has been dealt with in the past.
