After the deadly chemical weapons attack in Syria, Trump set out to blame Barack Obama and his administration. “These heinous acts are a consequence of the past administration’s weakness and irresolution. President Obama said in 2012 that he would establish a ‘red line’ against the use of chemical weapons and then did nothing,” Trump said in a White House statement. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is believed to be responsible for the attack.
