Trump touts 'perfectly carried out' missile strike, but lacks an overall strategy toward Syria
As President Trump basks in widespread approval for the U.S.-led missile strike aimed at Syrian chemical-weapons installations, the White House still faces a quandary over U.S. policy toward that country's civil war -- as well as some sharp questions about the president's war powers. Trump has yet to articulateTrump has yet to articulate a long-term U.S. strategy for dealing with the grinding, multi-sided war in Syria, which has lasted more than seven years, killed hundreds of thousands and triggered an epic refugee crisis.
Bush gave his speech aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier a little more than a month after US troops were deployed to Iraq, and it would soon become clear that the mission was, in fact, not accomplished. As the war, it came to symbolize what had gone wrong in Iraq.
Bush later told CNN.
"It was a sign aimed at the sailors on the ship, but it conveyed a broader knowledge," he said in 2008. "To some it said, well, Bush thinks the war in Iraq is over, when I didn't think that. But nonetheless, it conveyed the wrong message."
Here's how Twitter responded
"I didn't think I could be shocked by a tweet anymore but 'mission accomplished' was so surprising I had to double check that it was not a spoof," US Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, wrote.
Ari Fleischer, White House press secretary under Bush, responded to Trump's tweet, writing, "Um ... I would have recommended ending this tweet with not those two words." Fleischer went on to describe the back story of the banner.
MSNBC host Joy-Ann Reid tweeted, "Saying 'mission accomplished' always works out well for presidents."
Mike Levin, a Democratic candidate for California's 49th Congressional District, also criticized Trump's move. "Even George W. Bush, who almost never admitted mistakes, said using that term was a bad decision."
"Mission Accomplished???" wrote Jim Roberts, editor-in-chief of streaming news network Cheddar. "Is there ANYONE in the White House with an understanding of history?" he asked.

Both men have sent public signals in recent days that their relationship remains steady, with Trump describing a federal raid on Cohen’s offices and home as a “disgrace” and calling his attorney to check on him.
