“Behold, I have given him for a witness to the peoples, a prince and commander to the peoples.” Isaiah 55:4 (The Israel Bible™)
At a press conference from his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida on Thursday, President Trump explained his decision to retaliate militarily to Syria’s nerve gas attack, invoking God’s name multiple times in a speech with strong religious overtones.
“No child of god should ever suffer such horror,” the president declared. “Years of previous attempts at changing Assad’s behavior have all failed and failed very dramatically. As a result, the refugee crisis continues to deepen and the region continues to destabilize, threatening the United States and its allies. Tonight I call on all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria, and also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types.”
