President Trump announced Thursday that the United States had attacked a Syrian air base with cruise missiles. These air strikes were in retaliation for this week’s gruesome chemical weapons attack against innocent Syria civilians.
According to the president, the “targeted military strike” was on an air base in Syria where 59 Tomahawk missiles were launched.
Trump addressed the media about the airstrikes from his weekend home at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. Trump said of the airstrike, “It is in the vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons.”
As with any Trump announcement, many celebrities took to social media to share their thoughts.
