Past tweets from prominent Democrats including Vice President Kamala Harris and White House press secretary Jen Psaki that were critical of former President Donald Trump’s approval of airstrikes in Syria resurfaced after President Joe Biden ordered an airstrike late Thursday.
Harris, then a California senator, previously tweeted that she was “deeply concerned about the legal rationale” of an April 2018 airstrike approved by Trump that targeted three chemical weapons sites in Syria. Harris also said the former president needed to lay out a Syria strategy “in consultation with Congress.”
Kamala Harris on Twitter: "I strongly support our men and women in uniform and believe we must hold Assad accountable for his unconscionable use of chemical weapons. But I am deeply concerned about the legal rationale of last night’s strikes." / TwitterPsaki previously questioned Trump’s “legal authority” to conduct airstrikes after the former president approved an operation in April 2017 targeting a Syrian air base.
“Assad is a brutal dictator. But Syria is a sovereign country,” she tweeted.
Jen Psaki on Twitter: "Also what is the legal authority for strikes? Assad is a brutal dictator. But Syria is a sovereign country." / TwitterA number of other prominent Democrats slammed the Trump administration for conducting airstrikes in Syria. Critics argued that such operations were unconstitutional and the former president required congressional authorization for military force.
Then-House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tweeted in April 2018 that airstrikes “were no substitute for a coherent strategy” and Trump needed to “come to Congress” and propose a “comprehensive strategy.”

Then-presidential candidate Biden called Trump’s actions in Syria “erratic” and “impulsive” during an Oct. 2019 campaign event and rebuked the former president’s decision to withdraw troops from northern Syria. (RELATED: At Least 1 Dead And Several Injured In US Airstrike On Iraqi Militia Group)
It would be funny if they had any sense of shame or hypocrisy, but, of course, they don’t The idea that if Trump orders something it is bad and Biden’s ordering of the exact same thing is good, doesn’t bother them at all.
Similarly, like the unescorted alien kids being held cages? Jen tells reporters “It’s not the same” but it’s the same, in fact Biden made it worse. Instead of being in the large buildings where they could see others, they are now in windowless 20’ storage containers with lights and air conditioning. talk about being caged.......
