See, Obama? That’s how it’s done.
Retired Army Gen. Jack Keane said that when President Donald Trump authorized a missile strike of a Syrian airbase Thursday, he sent a clear message to not only Syria and the entire Middle East, but also to the entire world.

Trump authorized the military strike in response to the Bashar al-Assad regime’s use of chemical weapons against its own people.
Keane told Fox News host Sean Hannity that it was a “setback for [Russian President Vladimir] Putin here for sure, and the Iranians as well,” because both countries allied themselves with Assad.
“We know, based on the three visits from Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan, that President Trump has absolutely revitalized the historical and traditional relationship that the United States has had” since the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration — a relationship that was never interrupted until Obama.
“This is an incredible message that should have been sent years ago by the Obama administration,” Keane continued.
Keane agreed with Hannity’s assertion that friends and foes around the globe observed and will remember Trump’s authorization of military action.
In Trump, “they see a strong, decisive leader,” he said.
“He’s taken a very limited action, but it sends an incredibly strong message to our adversaries in the world, who are paying attention, believe me,” Keane said. “We have a decisive president who is going to act on behalf of U.S. national interests and the interests of our allies.”
“That is an unequivocally, loud, clear message.”
And unlike Obama, who announced his intentions but didn’t follow through, Trump kept his intentions to himself and struck without warning.
