First and foremost in his rise to the Presidency, it has been the thought that President Donald Trump is a businessman at heart and by trade. That has led some to question his ability to lead the United States through the tangled web of world relationships and world power. The Tomahawk missile strikes against Syria over their use of chemical weapons has changed all that. It is a mark of leadership and the ability to make the hard decisions. Look what the media in China, a mouthpiece of the Communist government, has this to say about our President.

China’s state newspaper The Global Times published an editorial criticizing President Donald Trump’s decision to conduct airstrikes in Syria, suggesting it was made “in haste,” but also observed that Trump appears to want “prove to the world that he is no ‘businessman president.’”
As the Communist Party of China controls the content of the Global Times, its editorials are often interpreted as unfiltered opinion from the government itself, often significantly more belligerent than the diplomatic statements out of China’s Foreign Ministry.
“The US military attack on Friday took place despite no definitive results from the investigation by an international organization, and was carried out in the absence of a UN Security Council resolution. The Trump administration wasted little time in striking its targets, marking a stark contrast with its predecessor,” the Times observed.
“The US’ decision to attack the Assad government is a show of force from the US president. He wants to prove that he dares to do what Obama dared not,” the article continues, referring to President Barack Obama’s declaration that using chemical weapons was a “red line” after Assad was accused of using them, but not issuing any military response to the act.
