WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) issued the following statement about last night's military strike in Syria:

“I commend President Trump for his swift action against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.  Assad is a thug.  He cannot murder his own citizens and children without expecting consequences,” said Sen. Kennedy.  “You cannot reason with someone like Assad- it's like trying to hand feed a shark and expecting to get anything but bitten.  I hope that Assad gets the message that there's a new Sheriff in town and that the United States of America will assert its moral authority to do the right thing.”
