Trump’s 2013 tweets on Syria warning the US against airstrikes emerges as he attacks Syria

President Trump’s statement on the Assad regime’s chemical attack in Syria pulled no punches in blaming the Obama administration:

Today’s chemical attack in Syria against innocent people, including women and children, is reprehensible and cannot be ignored by the civilized world. These heinous actions by the Bashar al-Assad regime are a consequence of the past administration’s weakness and irresolution. President Obama said in 2012 that he would establish a “red line” against the use of chemical weapons and then did nothing. The United States stands with our allies across the globe to condemn this intolerable attack.

Yet in a series of Tweets in 2013, Donald Trump warned then US president Barack Obama to desist from attacking Syria because the US would gain nothing from it. Now a lot of people are calling him a hypocrite for doing what he warned Barack Obama from doing. President Trump however, has defended his actions, saying that the photos and videos of several dying women and children he saw on Tuesday made him have a change of heart.
