Hyer's Highlights: Trump's Airstrikes in Syria

The news cycle has been dominated by chemical attack in Syria’s Idlib province which killed at least 89 people. It was a horrific crime and tragedy, implemented according to intelligence to dictator Bashar al-Assad.

The first condemnation we heard from the US President was released just hours after the attack, and a day later, Trump appeared publicly to describe the incident as an “affront to humanity”, clarifying that it “crossed a lot of lines”.
