Trump: China ‘understood immediately’ why we launched missiles on Syria

Trump sent a marker that the use of chemical weapons will not be tolerated. 
This is not unique to him.  It's against international law to use chemical weapons.  If the U.S. is the leader of the free world, President Trump was absolutely justified.     

MichaelGoodwin of NY Post reports the missile strike in Syria overshadowed his two-day meeting with China president Xi Jinping, who brought his wife to meet Trump and first lady Melania Trump at Mar-a-Lago. The leaders ended their first meeting just as the first missiles were launched.

“When I explained to him what we were doing, because of the gassing of children, he understood immediately,” Trump told me.

I asked about their summit, given some of the harsh things Trump has said about China.

“I was a little surprised, we had a great chemistry, not good, but great,” Trump said. “I liked him and he liked me a lot. That doesn’t mean we’re going to get along on trade or North Korea, but we had great chemistry.”
