Trump on Assad: ‘That’s a butcher’
By Dan Merica and Richard Roth, CNN
President Donald Trump, at a news conference with the head of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, described Syrian President Bashar al-Assad as “a butcher” as a result of the chemical attack the US government has accused him of carrying out on his own civilians.
“That’s a butcher. That’s a butcher,” Trump said of Assad. “So I felt we had to do something about it.”
