Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham praised President Donald Trump’s decision to launch 60 Tomahawk missiles at a single Syrian airfield Thursday evening.

Trump launched the missiles in response to a Tuesday chemical weapons attack on civilians by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s air force.

The senators declared, “unlike the previous administration, President Trump confronted a pivotal moment in Syria and took action.” Both characterized the strike as “an important message” to both Assad, and Russian President Vladimir Putin. “The United States will not stand idly by,” they defiantly proclaimed.

The statement continued that “We must learn the lessons of history and ensure that tactical success leads to strategic progress.”
