Back in 2013, Donald Trump insisted that the United States not attack Syria. According to Trump, there was “no upside and tremendous downside” if the Obama administration decided to strike Bashar al-Assad.

Many observers, including Michael Savage, have claimed that military generals persuaded Trump to attack, despite the president’s previous opposition to military intervention.
