Ron Paul harshly criticized President Trump’s decision to strike a Syrian airfield during a Friday interview on Russia Today.

The former Texas congressman first stated he doesn’t believe “the evidence is there” to say with 100 percent accuracy that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is responsible for the deadly sarin gas attack that took place earlier this week.

“They needed a so-called excuse… to go into Iraq so they concocted stories, and all kinds of things. That’s what this is a part of,” Paul, a career non-interventionist, continued. “If all of this is true, I don’t know why they couldn’t wait and take a look at it.”

“Right now, I don’t see conceivably it doing what they claim because right now it’s helping ISIS, it’s helping al-Qaeda, it’s helping the enemy we’re supposedly fighting.” (VIDEO: Ron Paul Says Sarin Gas Attack In Syria Is A ‘False Flag’)
