Trump Gets Mocked Over Statement

Sen. Angus King (I-ME) recently said to CNN that President Trump’s tweet stating “mission accomplished” regarding the U.S. military strike on Syria was “impossible to say at this point.”

King stated, “The second question sort of answered the first question. I think it is very difficult to say mission accomplished if the mission is to deter the use of chemical weapons. We hope that will be the case. We did a strike a year ago for that same purpose and it was deemed a success but the chemical weapons have continued to be used.”

“So I think it is impossible to say at this point the mission has been accomplished. It is a more significant strike than a year ago and hit three strikes instead of one more missiles. It was accomplished apparently with the precision that our military is capable of saying it has been a success we won’t know until we see whether the regime continued to use chemical weapons.”
