President trump is praising the successful air strikes executed in Syria by the United Kingdom, France, and the U.S. military. The President said in a tweet Saturday, thank you to France and the united kingdom for their wisdom, and the power of their fine military. He added, he could not have had a better result, to which he declared “mission accomplished.” The President’s tweet comes after a surprise strike Friday, and condemnation of Russia and Iran, for their actions and assistance to the Assad government.
Defense Secretary James Mattis doubles down on previous claims saying all options are on the table for Syria. Mattis would not give away too much information about the next move by the U.S., but did provide insight into what stage of the decision-making process they’re currently in.
