The goal of this military operation was to reduce the ability of the Syrian military to carry out further attacks with the use of chemical weapons and to prevent its further use by the Syrian government,Trump quotes the White House press office.
I acted in accordance with my constitutional authority to conduct external operations and to protect the vital interests of national security and the foreign policy of the United States as commander in chief,he declared.
