Friday on "The Chris Salcedo Show," Congressman Michael McCaul (R–Texas) called in to update the listeners on the fallout from Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's sarin gas attack against his citizens.
Last January, Barack Obama's national security adviser, Susan Rice, boasted during a radio interview that the Obama administration had persuaded the Syrian government to get rid of its chemical weapons stockpile in 2013. However, the nerve gas attack that took place earlier this week provides strong evidence that this disarmament never took place.
McCaul slammed Rice for her long history of foreign policy deceptions.
"She also told us that Benghazi was the result of a video," McCaul said. "You know, she's always in the middle of every foreign policy disaster. And, you know, she got this one wrong too."
McCaul also praised Trump for his early efforts to build respect for America abroad.
"The bottom line is that they just don't respect us, and I think if anything President Trump is going to command respect of the United States around the world. And people will know that they can't get away with this, and if they do it there will be consequences."
