President Trump campaigned on “knocking the hell out of ISIS.” He campaigned on limiting Syrian refugees, of whom 5 million have fled the war-torn country. He campaigned on “America First.” But being president is different than campaigning.

Trump just learned his first lesson in human cruelty and the weight of his office. His military response to Syrian strongman Bashar Assad’s use of Sarin nerve gas on his own civilians could make Syria and Russia his dealbreakers.
