Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy of upstate South Carolina has never been afraid of telling the truth about a situation, even if it’s not what some people would like to hear. He proved this in his historically important role as the leader of the Benghazi investigation about Hillary Clinton.
Now that Trey Gowdy has been appointed into being part of the congressional task force on Russia, his words carry even more weight. Gowdy has been keeping close watch on what has been happening recently in the Middle East, and he had a powerful warning for Middle Eastern leaders following President Trump’s airstrike.
Gowdy was supportive of Trump’s 59 missile bombing raid of a Syrian airfield, which finally drew the line in the sand with homicidal dictator Bashar al-Assad after years of inaction by Muslim-appeasing former President Barack Obama.
Gowdy stated that Trump’s bold move finally told bad actors in the Middle East that “our patience has some boundaries.” He stated that Trump’s strike was justified as a response to Assad’s gas attack on his own citizens, saying, “If you hurt children with chemical weapons, there’s going to be a response.”
He continued, “Assad said he had no more chemical weapons and he lied.” He stated that he supported limiting civilian deaths, and gave his fully backing to whatever Trump decides to do with Assad. Said Trey, “I’ll let the commander and chief decide how to handle Assad. There has to be a price to pay for that. If he [Assad] doesn’t get the message, do it again.” Do you agree with Trey Gowdy?
