Trump confirms that he wanted to assassinate Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in 2017

Speaking on Fox & Friends on Tuesday, President Trump confirmed that in 2017 he supported assassinating Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, but the move was opposed by then-Defense Secretary Jim Mattis.

Trump previously denied wanting to assassinate al-Assad after it was reported by journalist Bob Woodward in a 2018 book.

“I would’ve rather taken him out. I had him all set. Mattis didn’t want to do it.”
