Pro-Trump U.S. Rep: “It Doesn’t Make Sense That Assad Would Use Gas”

in News by

While President Donald Trump gets ready to get tough on Syria following reports of new chemical attacks, one of his most stalwart defenders in the U.S. House is not buying the story and is urging Trump not to start another war.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) re-tweeted an interview that he gave a year ago as well, during the last time that Syrian President Bashir al-Assad allegedly launched a chemical attack on his own people. Massie said that the clip is as relevant today as it was then.

Massie also re-posted a string of tweets from his colleague, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) that he called “a tactical strike” on the fake news that is being circulated by neoconservative war hawks on Twitter.

Before Trump was President, he posted tweets echoing similar sentiments as Massie and Amash. Trump called for a lawful declaration of war by Congress and largely warned against action in Syria.

Massie hopes that Trump regains the common sense that he had before he assumed power in the White House and listens to founding-era revolutionaries including George Washington who stood firmly against preemptive, undeclared war.
