AP’s Salama: ‘A Little Bit of Conspiracy Theory’ In Trump’s Syria Strike, ‘In Terms of Wanting to Distract From the Investigations’

On Friday’s broadcast of PBS’ “Washington Week,” Associated Press White House Reporter Vivian Salama stated that there is “a little bit of it is conspiracy theory” in President Trump’s strike on Syria “in terms of wanting to distract from the investigations. There’s maybe a little bit of that.”

Salama said, while discussing Trump’s strike against Syria, “I do think a little bit of it is conspiracy theory in terms of wanting to distract from the investigations. There’s maybe a little bit of that. But President Trump is someone who also really responds to what the media’s saying about him. And so, suddenly it’s a win for him after Syria. It was good news. He acted on something, and there was a lot of celebration, even from some of his biggest critics. And so I think, for him, that is a huge part in it, especially after a couple of weeks of just like, you know, constant, you know, shortfalls, I guess we could say. There — he wanted that, and he needed that. And so, I’m sure he welcomes the distraction. Whether or not he intended for it to happen, he definitely welcomes it. He’s thrilled.”
