This Is Not America First: Right Wing Rages At Trump Over Syria Strike

By Eric Lutz | April 14, 2018

President Donald Trump is facing backlash from his far-right allies following Friday’s United States-led airstrikes on Syria, with the “America First” president coming under conservative scrutiny for involving the country more deeply in another foreign conflict.

Trump ran for office on a non-interventionist platform, famously — and falsely — claiming that he had always been against the U.S. invasion of Iraq. During his inaugural address in 2017, he lamented that the U.S. has “defended other nation’s borders while refusing to defend our own, and spent trillions and trillions of dollars overseas while America’s infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay.” And, since assuming the presidency, he has repeatedly sought a more isolationist approach to foreign affairs.

8. And? This is a news discussion forum is it not? Are you not afforded the same

opportunity to initiate OPs just as I do?

I will do as I do, what you choose to do is up to you.

Have a nice evening, indeed.

13. You're claiming that right wingers are "raging" and you are posting random tweets trying to prove

your point. I'm just saying *I'm not raging and I really don't see anyone else here (other than yourself) doing that.

Watching the Timberbulls and hoping for a miracle...

14. I'm not claiming anything of the sort, the author of the OP is. Perhaps you should take it up
