The White House has condemned a terrible gas attack that killed at least 58 people including 11 children in troubled Syria.
The attack is allegedly suspected to be carried out by the Syrian government.
Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that the chemical attack in that country against innocent people including kids was reprehensive. “The United States stands with our allies across the globe to condemn this intolerable act.”
However, Spicer slammed the former president, Barack Obama for the attack, describing it as a “consequence of the past administration’s weakness and irresolution.”
Spicer added that the former president had drawn a red line against Assad’s chemical weapons in 2012, but revealed that he did nothing.
Spicer said it’s in the best “the best interests of the Syrian people” for Assad to step down, but would not say whether the U.S. government would take direct action to respond to the attack.
