Syria airstrikes: Celebrities, pundits reacts to US bombing of airfield

President Trump announces targeted airstrikes on Syria in response to Assad's chemical attacks on his people, children, in 'vital national security interests of the United States' and calls for coalition against terrorism


President Donald Trump announced Thursday the United States blasted a Syrian air base with a barrage of cruise missiles in fiery retaliation for this week's gruesome chemical weapons attack against civilians.

"It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons," Trump told reporters from his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

Following Trump's announcement, many public personalities took to social media to share their thoughts.

Up to 100 children, women and men died in the horrific chemical attack in Syria this week. We were wondering what we could do to help. Our friends at Preemptive Love (@preemptivelove) are helping the survivors rebuild their lives so our family and close friends are coming together to offer Preemptive Love $100,000 if 100 of you sign up to be monthly sponsors in the next 48 hours to help with the ongoing needs these families and others will have after the headlines move on. There is so much work to do. Any amount helps. We are not powerless. We can make a difference here!

Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ “And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭25:37-40‬ ‭
