President Trump re-tweeted a quote Saturday by United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley.

In reference to the airstrikes against Syria on Friday night, Haley said, “When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line.”

The “red line” phrase came from former President Barack Obama, when he was faced with a similar situation regarding Syria in 2012. Obama had stated, “We have been very clear to the Assad regime—but also to other players on the ground—that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized.”

However, when Assad crossed the “red line” by committing another gas attack, little action was taken.

Last Sunday, President Trump condemned Obama’s lack of action against Syria, tweeting, “If President Obama had crossed his stated Red Line In The Sand, the Syrian disaster would have ended long ago! Animal Assad would have been history!”
