The reactions to US President Donald Trump’s decision from Washington DC were mostly positive, though Democrats did warn that should POTUS want to continue with a further attack on the Syrian regime, their desire is that he consults congress first.

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi claimed that: “This latest chemical weapons attack against the Syrian people was a brutally inhumane war crime that demands a strong, smart and calculated response. One night of airstrikes is not a substitute for a clear, comprehensive Syria strategy.”

Her sentiments were copied by her Democratic counterpart in the Senate, Mr Chuck Schumer, who claimed that: “A pinpointed, limited action to punish and hopefully deter Assad from doing this again is appropriate, but the administration has to be careful about not getting us into a greater and more involved war in Syria.”

One of the probable Democratic candidates for the 2020 Presidential campaign, Ms Elizabeth Warren, was even more direct when she said: “The Constitution gives Congress the power to authorize military action. If Mr Donald Trump wants to expand American military involvement in Syria’s civil war, he must seek approval from Congress and provide a comprehensive strategy with clear goals & a plan to achieve them.”

On the Republican side, there was only support for President Trump’s actions, with House Speaker Paul Ryan stating: “Tonight, the United States has taken decisive action in coordination with our allies. We are united in our resolve that Assad’s barbaric use of chemical weapons cannot go unanswered. His regime’s unconscionable brutality against innocent civilians cannot be tolerated.”

And Senator Jim Inhofe of the state of Oklahoma claimed that: “tonight was yet another example of how under President Trump, the United States is once again standing up as the leader of the free world.”
