On Fox News – Trump’s favourite cable news channel – host Tucker Carlson railed against striking Syria on Monday night.
“All the geniuses tell us that [Syrian president Bashar al]-Assad killed those children, but do they really know that? Of course they don’t really know that. They’re making it up,” he said.
“They have no real idea of what happened. Actually, both sides in the Syrian civil war possess chemical weapons. How would it benefit Assad using chlorine gas last weekend? Well, it wouldn’t.”
He warned that a war to overthrow Assad would lead to chaos and thousands of atrocities.
“In fact we might likely see the genocide of one of the last remaining Christian communities in the Middle East,” he added.
