The bombing of Syrian civilians was not the first nor was it the worst, but it was the first time under President Donald Trump’s presidency and the new president was deeply concerned.

Despite claims from Russia that this attack on Syrians was a “false flag,” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson confirmed that the attack did occur and placed the blame at the feet of the Syrian leader.

Speaking to the White House press corps Thursday en route to Mar-a-Lago, Trump told reporters that “something should happen” to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

“I think what Assad did is terrible. I think what happened in Syria is one of the truly egregious crimes. It shouldn’t have happened. It shouldn’t be allowed to happen,” Trump said. “I think what happened in Syria is a disgrace to humanity. He’s there, and I guess he’s running things, so something should happen.”

Thursday night, MSNBC reported that a United States Navy boat fired tomahawk cruise missiles into Homs, Syria aimed specifically at aircraft and buildings.
