With The World Watching Trump Humiliates Himself With Answer On Syria Chemical Attack

During a joint press conference, President Trump was asked if he blamed the Obama administration for the situation in Syria, and if he bears responsibility for responding to the chemical attacks. Trump responded with a humiliating answer that showed that he knows nothing. Trump rambled and tried to change the subject, but he couldn’t hide his gross ignorance.


Trump said, “Well, I think the Obama administration had a great opportunity to solve this crisis when he said the red line in the sand, and when he didn’t cross that line after making the threat, I think that set us back a long ways not only in Syria, but in many other parts of the world, because it was a blank threat. I think it was something that was not one of our better days as a country, so I do feel that Julie, I feel that very strongly.”

Trump tried to dodge the rest of the question about responsibility, but the AP’s Julie Pace followed up and forced the president to answer, “I now have responsibility, and I will have that responsibility and carry it very proudly. I will tell you that. It is now my responsibility. It was a great opportunity missed. As you know, I’ll be meeting with the president of China very soon in Florida, and that’s another responsibility we have and that’s the country of North Korea. We have a big problem. We have somebody who’s not doing the right thing, and that’s going to be my responsibility, and I’m going to tell you that responsibility would be a lot easier if it was handled years ago.”

Trump seems to think that saying the word responsibility a lot is the same as outlining responsible behavior or a response. When one closely examines the president’s answer, what he really said was that he blames Obama for Syria. He is upset because Obama didn’t solve all of the world’s problems for Trump. Donald Trump isn’t going to do anything about Syria, which is why he tried to change the subject to China and North Korea.y

Any world leader that listened to Trump’s answer would have fallen off of their chair in laughter because it is clear that this president doesn’t know anything. Trump is trying to bluff his way through the presidency. After a horrific chemical attack in Syria, Trump’s answer was to blame 9Obama and humiliate himself by repeating the word responsibility six hundred times.

At a time when the world needs the United States to lead, Donald Trump can’t stop embarrassing himself.
