In typical fashion, Donald Trump is flip-flopping on his decision to authorize strikes on Syria after tweeting that he might carry the action.
The commander-in-chief went on yet another Twitter tirade, declaring that “nice and new and ‘smart’” missiles would soon be fired towards Syria as a response to the recent chemical-weapons attack.
Apparently, he failed to run it by the White House National Security team, staffers and U.S. allies, because the White House later issued a statement explaining that a final decision had not yet been made regarding Syria.
The hasty tweets fired off on Wednesday directly contradicted this tweet the president posted early Thursday morning: “Never said when an attack on Syria would take place. Could be very soon or not so soon at all! In any event, the United States, under my Administration, has done a great job of ridding the region of ISIS. Where is our ‘Thank you?’”
Yeah, we’re just as confused, too.
Reportedly, White House staffers plan to meet later Thursday to develop a more sound strategy on Syria.
