Senator Durbin Has Concerns About Trump's Syria Strikes
Illinois' senior U.S. Senator says he's glad to see the U.S. strike at Syria's chemical weapons, but he's worried about how it happened. Senator Dick Durbin told reporters in Springfield yesterday that he is bothered that President Trump took to Twitter to essentially announce that the strikes would take place. Durbin says the warning gave Russia and Syria time to prepare, and that could have cost U.S. lives. Durbin also says he wants the president to get Congressional approval before launching any other strikes.
