Kellyanne Conway told the Fox & Friends team Tuesday that even though “conventional wisdom” would suggest that the White House has a “plan” for removing Bashar al-Assad from power, the Trump administration will not unveil the exact details of that strategy.
“I think when you see the very decisive, resolute actions of President Trump last week,” Conway noted in reference to Thursday’s strike on an Syrian airfield. “He did exactly what he said he would do on the campaign trail, which is to consult with his generals and national security team, weigh the facts and the evidence and take action.”
Despite prying from host Steve Doocy, Conway declined to elaborate on what exact “action” the White House could take.
“Our press secretary Sean Spicer said yesterday in his briefing that the president will continue to hold those cards close to his vest, and he should be doing that,” she stated. “This is is in the interest of our nation for the commander in chief, the president and his national security team to take action privately.”
