President Trump “can’t speak of protecting Syrian babies and close America’s door to them” – Hillary Clinton | WATCH

Published

 on

Hillary Clinton discussed President Donald Trump’s decision to launch missiles at an air base in Syria last week as she began her keynote speech at a fundraising luncheon for Annie’s List.

Clinton criticised Trump who had repeatedly advocated for a refugee ban that would include people fleeing war in Syria.

Condemning the alleged use of chemical weapon in Syria, Trump had said: “When you kill innocent children, innocent babies — babies, little babies — with a chemical gas that is so lethal, people were shocked to hear what gas it was, that crosses many, many lines.

According to CNN, Clinton said Trump’s condemnation is in direct contrast to his concern for these children.

She said;

Syria has been a wicked problem for a very long time, and the images of innocent people, of parents, and especially of children, suffering in the aftermath of that most recent deadly gas attack, were appalling than I certainly could put into words. As I said, it is essential that the world does more to deter Syrian President Bashar Hafez al-Assad from committing future murderous atrocities.

But the action taken needs to be followed by a broader strategy to end Syria’s civil war and to eliminate ISIS’s stronghold on both sides of the border. So I hope this administration will move forward in a way that is both strategic and consistent with our values, and I also hope that they will recognise that we cannot in one breath speak of protecting Syria’s babies and in the next, close America’s doors to them.

    Trump is looking out for his own interest and the Republican. Hilary, you are not any better. Neither of the party is looking out for any babies, just their own ego/pocket.

    Oh Hillary, you’re wrong on this babe. No one truly wants to be a refugee in another country. They will rather you protect them in their lands than open your land to them after they have spent two years of tumultuous toiling, traveling half the world to find a place of solace.

    Trump has done many wrongs but he’s totally right on this one.

    Argghh, Hillary give it a rest please! Stop looking for every opportunity to criticize Trump. He is right on this one. You lost the election, get over it! Else you start to look really desperate. And stupid too.

    Praises for Trump from the mouth of a Syrian chemical attack survivor.
    Put the CNN reporter trying to goad him into antagonising Trump in her place.

    Morale, nobody wants to be a refugee, there is no beauty in it. If you love them, help them make their country safe for them to live in.

    The fear of another country being in possession of deadly weapons.
