Trump’s statements on targeting President al-Assad reflect a policy as practiced by bandits in reaching its goals

The Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates has underscored that the Trump Administration adopts the same policy of terrorist groups to reach its goals. 
The remarks were made by a source at the ministry commenting on the US Administration’s statement made yesterday on targeting President Bashar al-Assad. 
The source said that the US Administration’s statements uncover clearly the level to which the thinking and political behavior of the US administration has descended to and they only reflect an administration based on bandits who use crime to reach their goals.
“The US Administration represents a rogue state that adopts the same policy of terrorist groups related to murder without taking rules or ethics into consideration with the aim of reaching their goals,” the source concluded. 
Yesterday, Trump said he had “a shot” to take out Syrian President Bashar al-Assad but didn’t take it because the then-Defense Secretary James Mattis opposed the plan.
