PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) " President Donald Trump is framing his decision to intervene in Syria's long civil war as an example of his flexibility.
In the past Trump has warned against getting involved in Syria. But now, in the wake of the U.S. missile strike on a Syrian air base, Trump says he can change and is proud of being flexible.
The images of men, women and children killed in a Syrian chemical weapons attack moved Trump to order the strike. Some of Trump's supporters say ideological elasticity is a virtue for a president who took office with no practical foreign policy experience.
