Trump: When I Saw the Images of the Dead Children I Said ‘We Have To Do Something’
TRUMP: "This is an animal. I will tell you that when I looked at the pictures, especially when you see them on television, and you see these beautiful kids that are dead in their father’s arms or you see kids gasping for life and you know it’s over for them, they are hosing them down, hundreds of them., when you see that, I immediately called General Mattis. I said, 'What can we do?' They came back with a number of different alternatives and we hit them very hard. Now, are we going to get involved with Syria? No. But if I see them using gas and using things that — I mean, even some of the worst tyrants in the world didn’t use the kinds of gases that they used. And some of the gases are unbelievably potent. When I saw that, I said we have to do something."
