Trump says Syria strikes ‘could not have had a better result’

Washington (United States) (AFP) – President Donald Trump on Saturday praised the pre-dawn strikes against Syria’s regime carried out jointly by the US, Britain and France, saying they “could not have had a better result.”

Western officials said a barrage of cruise and air-to-land missiles hit what they said were sites linked to chemical weapons development.

“A perfectly executed strike last night. Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military,” Trump tweeted.

“Could not have had a better result. Mission Accomplished!”
