One of the many reasons people love President Trump is that he isn’t afraid to go toe-to-toe with some of the world’s most dangerous leaders,including those from Russia.

Russian authorities made threats recently about shooting down any U.S. missiles aimed at Syria in retaliation for recent gas attacks carried out on civilians by the Assad regime.

Trump was not having any of that nonsense, firing back in a big way on Twitter.

The Free Beacon is reporting:

“Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria,” Trump tweeted. “Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!”

Trump then struck a more conciliatory tone regarding Russia.

“Our relationship with Russia is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War. There is no reason for this,” Trump tweeted. “Russia needs us to help with their economy, something that would be very easy to do, and we need all nations to work together. Stop the arms race?”

Trump also tweeted about a variety of subjects starting with a New York Times story about Ukraine.

“The Failing New York Times wrote another phony story,” Trump tweeted. “It was political pundit Doug Schoen, not a Ukrainian businessman, who asked me to do a short speech by phone (Skype), hosted by Doug, in Ukraine. I was very positive about Ukraine-another negative to the Fake Russia C story!”

There are a lot of folks who think Trump’s rhetoric on social media is out of control, unprofessional, and dangerous, but look at what he’s managed to accomplish with North Korea. They are now willing to come to the table to cut a deal and discuss disarming their nuclear program.

This is far more than what Obama, Bush, and Clinton managed to get done concerning the country.

Assad is terrorizing his own people for the sheer fun of it. It’s wicked, disgusting, and pure evil. What kind of nation would we be if we had the power to stop something so horrific and refused to take those steps or to at least consider taking action?

This is probably what’s going through Trump’s mind as he considers what steps to take to answer this terrible tragedy.

Let’s hope Russia decides to do the right thing and back down from their threats.
