Trump gave Syria attack order 'during dessert' with Xi Jinping

On the cake: "I was sitting at the table". "We're nearly finished. What does he do?" We are now having dessert.

President Donald Trump said that he told Chinese President Xi Jinping about the United States strike on Syria over chocolate cake at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida last Thursday night.

"What I did should have been done by the Obama administration a long time before I did it and you would have had a much better, I think, Syria would be a lot better off than it has been".

Trump, later in the interview, said he "immediately" called Defense Secretary James Mattis after he saw the images of children dying from the chemical attack and asked, "What can we do?"

"And I said, "Mr. President, let me explain something to you" - this was during dessert - 'we've just fired 59 missiles'". In fairness, Bartiromo was the one who first brought up dessert - asking Trump, "When did you tell him?".

When a "gushing" Bartiromo asked Trump what it was like to order the strike, the U.S. president said, "You have no idea how many people want to hear the answer to this. We're nearly finished and I, what does he do, finish his dessert and go home", Trump asked rhetorically.

"And he said to me, "Anybody that uses gases" - you could nearly say "or anything else" - 'but anybody that is so brutal and uses gases to do that to young children and's OK.' He was OK with it".

Trump spoke of a "great feeling" between himself and Xi, who he "really likes being with", at least officially. China's official Xinhua news agency published a detailed breakdown of their conversation, saying that Xi had urged for a "peaceful resolution" to the North Korea crisis. Xi has avoided commenting. Syrian media said seven staff and nine civilians were killed in the strike.

"It's so incredible, it's brilliant, it's genius".

We would not be surprised if the United States and Russian Federation eventually agree to bring peace in Syria even with Assad remove from power.

Pentagon chief Jim Mattis said Tuesday there was "no doubt" the Syrian regime was behind the chemical attack.
