  • America is Back: President Trump Puts America’s Interests First to Political Praise, Showing the Commander-In-Chief has Heart

    By Neil A. Carousso

    As radical Islamic terrorism ravages through the Middle East, persecuting minority Christians in the region, President Donald J. Trump’s foreign policy is shifting in order to increase America’s standing in the world after the previous Obama Administration was”all talk, no action,” drawing a red line in Syria in August 2012 but refusing to act militarily when Syrian President Bashar-al-Assad launched a chemical weapons attack on its citizens. Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice, who is being called to testify under oath by Senate Republicans for allegedly unmasking Trump transition team members names for political purposes while intelligence agencies surveiled Mr. Trump’s campaign, even claimed that the Obama Administration “actually removed the chemical weapons that were known from Syria.”

    Former Secretary of State John Kerry and former President Barack Obama, himself, claimed “100 percent” of chemical weapons were removed from Syria. Since 2013, there have been 10 chemical weapons attacks on Syrian civilians with the Syrian government responsible for at least half of the heinous attacks.

    Last Tuesday, Syria and its dictator Bashar al-Assad launched a chemical weapons attack on its people. President Trump responded with a 59 Tomahawk missile strike 63 hours later, sending the message to Syria and the world that the United States will not tolerate human rights violations.

    Watch the “Carousso’s Comments” monologue from Sunday’s “The Neil A. Carousso Show”, below, that led with breaking news after a terror attack in Egypt that killed 44 at two Churches on Palm Sunday. Plus, the heinous Syria terror attack and President Donald Trump’s airstrike response in the context of the Commander-In-Chief’s foreign policy challenges.

    Few politicians from both sides of the aisle have criticized the strike. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky), Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) are among those critical. Rep. Gabbard has received blowback from fellow Democrats for her lack of support for the Syria airstrike. Sen. Warren has claimed that President Trump should welcome Syrian refugees after the deadly sarin gas attack that killed upwards of 80 people including innocent children.

    Ironically, a father of 9-month-old twins killed in the Syrian chemical attack told ABC News that he wants more airstrikes on Syria, asking, “Why did President Trump stop the strikes?”

    CNN and Fox News both interviewed Kassem Eid, a refugee who is thankful for Mr. Trump’s airstrike order and is optimistic that the Commander-in-Chief’s policies will bring down Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad in favor of American values and democracy that will permit him to return to his home country safely.

    On “The Real Deal with Neil” segment, Neil discusses President Trump’s change in heart after the Syrian attack. Plus, Harvard University students interviewed by Campus Reform believe Mr. Trump is more dangerous than ISIS, which does not add value to our country that needs to come together in order to defeat radical ideologies that seek to destroy American values.

    “The Neil A. Carousso Show” airs live on Sundays at 12 Noon ET/9 AM PT on YouTube and NeilACarousso.com.
