Steve Russell: Trump changes his tune and throws Tomahawks at Syria

So President Donald Trump has changed his mind about Syria and ordered a missile attack and now his administration supports the ouster of the Middle East nation's leader. But Steve Russell, a citizen of the Cherokee Nation, wonders whether Trump still wants to keep refugees out of the United States:
Donald…Donald….Donald—It’s not about you. It’s about your country, the one you are elected to lead.

It is good to see that you can change your mind. That’s a new trick and it was a surprise. You’re never been one to let the facts get in the way of your opinions, but you saw the same video we all saw and it affected you the same way.

You see those children struggling to breathe, you understand it was done on purpose, and you want somebody to pay a price. Nobody wants to live in a world where small children can be murdered with impunity, especially in such a painful way.

I get it. Everybody who saw that video gets it.

But if attacking Syria was a bad idea for the United States, it didn’t become a good idea when you got grossed out.
