That Time Trump Said Obama Would Launch A Strike Because ‘Poll Numbers Are In A Tailspin’

52

A U.S. official said that the Russians were warned before the U.S. launched at least 59 tomahawk missiles aimed at Syria at Donald Trump’s orders. However, the alleged president did not seek Congressional approval. Also, the former reality show star was not in The Situation Room when addressing the strikes. He was at his Florida Mar-a-Lago resort again, likely licking his wounds after enduring the worst poll numbers of any president just two months in office.

In 2012, conspiracy theorist Donald Trump tweeted, “Now that Obama’s poll numbers are in tailspin – watch for him to launch a strike in Libya or Iran. He is desperate.”

This old tweet is a gem, too.

Actually, in October of 2012, President Barack Obama polled at a 46 percent. Trump has only 41 percent as of now, and that number shows a slight increase from a few days ago.

Twitter users reacted to Trump’s old tweet following the strikes on Syria.

Trump regrets:(

In 2013, Trump opposed President Barack Obama’s attempt to strike when a sarin nerve gas attack left more than 1,400 dead outside of Damascus.

“AGAIN, TO OUR VERY FOOLISH LEADER, DO NOT ATTACK SYRIA – IF YOU DO MANY VERY BAD THINGS WILL HAPPEN & FROM THAT FIGHT THE U.S. GETS NOTHING!,” he tweeted in all caps.

That tweet, too, is coming back to haunt Trump.

With each chaotic day into Trump’s ‘presidency,’ his poll numbers have taken a hit. If we are to believe Trump in 2012 and 2013, then perhaps he launched strikes to improve his image and not because he felt it was the right thing to do. You can’t believe Trump in 2012-2013 and believe him in 2017.
