Donald Trump discussed Syria for a few minutes during his joint news conference with the Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri today in the Rose Garden at the White House.
“What he’s done to that country and to humanity is horrible,” Trump said of Bashar al-Assad.
He also said he will not let the Syrian president “get away” with his crimes against humanity.

Donald Trump is “not a fan of Assad”, and then proceeded to say that if President Obama just did his job, there wouldn’t be “Iran or Russia in Syria today.”
Trump then tried to slam Obama, saying:
“I will go so far to say that if Obama had gone across that line and done what he should have done, I don’t believe you’d have Russia or Iran in Syria today.”
Do you agree with Trump?
