Op-Ed: Cornyn Applauds Trump’s Response to Chemical Attacks in Syria

WASHINGTON –Tueday on the Senate floor, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) offered his support for President Trump’s recent military action against the Syrian regime in response to chemical attacks on innocent civilians.

Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s remarks are below, and video of his remarks can be found above

“This action demonstrates American leadership in the face of gross human rights violations. And as we all recall President Obama’s redline, which was not enforced, which, indeed, is a provocation in and of itself.”

“I’m glad this President has seen fit now, not just once but on two occasions, to punish the Syrian regime for such gross human rights violations. These actions are consistent with our values and the legal authorities provided to the president under the Constitution.”

“I want to offer my support for both the mission that was carried out and the underlying objective which was to degrade Syria’s capability to research, develop, and deploy chemical weapons, ones that have clearly done tremendous amounts of harm.”

“We’re grateful to our allies, Great Britain and France, who played a pivotal role in the mission and we’re also grateful to our uniformed military for its meticulous planning, flawless execution and courageous leadership.”

Senator John Cornyn, a Republican from Texas, is a member of the Senate Finance, Intelligence, and Judiciary Committees.

    And what is John Cornyn’s respond to PEEBRAIN Donald Trump’s refusal to impose more sanctions on Russia after the Russia’s support for Syrian president Bashar al Assad use of chemical weapons against his own people?
    US, UN ambassador Nikki Haley said that there would be more new sanctions imposed on Russia! but PEEBRAIN Trump seems to be afraid of Vladimir Putin. Putin must certainly have something on PEEBRAIN Trump, maybe a video of him and the five Russian prostitutes in the GOLDEN SHOWER 2013 Moscow Miss Universe Pageant.
    We don’t hear John Cornyn ever talking about that exotic event do we?
    President Obama’s Red Line was not enforced because Bashar al Assad handed over all of his chemical weapons to Russia for Russia to destroy them.
    What’s up with that about PEEBRAIN Trump giving Vladimir Putin heads up in advance about the up coming missile attacks on Syria. TRUMP NEED TO BE IMPEACHED! but Mike Pence is no better either.
    And John Cornyn needs to be voted out from the senate in 2020.
