US President Donald Trump can’t be judged by Syria related tweets in 2013: White House official

Washington, April 8, 2017: A White House official said Donald Trump’s tweets in 2013 arguing against military action in Syria should not be held against him because he was not the President then, a media report said.

“I think you’d admit that the things you say when you’re in a certain situation without the requisite experience that may come later shouldn’t be held against you,” Trump’s Deputy Assistant, Sebastian Gorka, said on Friday.

“You may have great ideas about what it means to be a parent, but you have no idea what it means to bear the responsibility once you have children. This is the same situation.”

Gorka said Trump’s perspective is different as President, CNN reported.

“What one says as a businessman…or what one says on the campaign trail in a politically charged environment for a year, is incredibly different to the perspective you may have after you take on the mantle of the commander-in-chief, and you are the person responsible for the safety of all Americans,” Gorka said.

“That’s what experience tells us, and to judge based on statements they made when they were not in that position of responsibility.”

Trump’s past tweets arguing against intervention in Syria resurfaced on Thursday, when Trump ordered a missile strike on a Syrian airfield in response to the chemical weapons attack by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime on a rebel stronghold that killed over 80 civilians, including children.
