John Bolton: Trump had full constitutional authority to act against Syria

John Bolton said this morning that last night’s attack on Syria was not only the right thing to do but Trump has the full constitutional authority to act against Syria as there was a definitely national security risk involved.

Watch at least the first few minutes of the interview he did this morning:

Bolton said last night’s attack ended the Obama era of foreign policy.

He also suggested later in the interview that perhaps Trump should have gone further, taking out all the chemical stockpiles in Syria that we know exist as well as taking out more of the Syrian Air Force.

As far as our national security interest, Bolton pointed to Syria’s breach of the Chemical Weapons Convention treaty.
