Trump offers Russia and Iran a choice: “Are You With Community of Nations or a Mass Murdering Monster?”

Trump speaking from the Diplomatic Reception Room at the White House announcing joint U.S. U.K. and French strikes on Syria April 13, 2018.

So much for being “Putin’s Puppet” as the Trump-Russia crowd claimed!

Trump offers Russia and Iran a choice: "Are You With Community of Nations or a Mass Murdering Monster?"
Friday evening April 13 in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House.

Friday evening President Trump came to the Diplomatic Reception Room in the White House and said:

My fellow Americans, a short time ago, I ordered the United States Armed Forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapons capabilities of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad. A combined operation with the armed forces of France and the United Kingdom is now underway. We thank them both.

The President went on to describe the reasons for the attacks. Full transcript is here. Video here.

The President also sent a direct message to both the Russians and the Iranians:

I also have a message tonight for the two governments most responsible for supporting, equipping, and financing the criminal Assad regime.

To Iran, and to Russia, I ask: What kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women, and children?

The nations of the world can be judged by the friends they keep. No nation can succeed in the long run by promoting rogue states, brutal tyrants, and murderous dictators.

In 2013, President Putin and his government promised the world that they would guarantee the elimination of Syria’s chemical weapons. Assad’s recent attack — and today’s response — are the direct result of Russia’s failure to keep that promise.

Russia must decide if it will continue down this dark path, or if it will join with civilized nations as a force for stability and peace. Hopefully, someday we’ll get along with Russia, and maybe even Iran — but maybe not.

I will say this: The United States has a lot to offer, with the greatest and most powerful economy in the history of the world.

Trump leading with our allies invites Russia to join the community of civilized nations.  The choice is theirs!
