U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross called the US missile strike on Syria’s Shayrat military airfiled “after-dinner entertainment” for President Donald Trump’s guests at Mar-a-Lago during a conference on Monday, Variety magazine reported.
“Just as dessert was being served, the president explained to Mr. Xi [Chinese President Xi Jinping] he had something he wanted to tell him, which was the launching of 59 missiles into Syria,” Ross said, according to Variety. “It was in lieu of after-dinner entertainment.”
“The thing was, it didn’t cost the president anything to have that entertainment,” the US official added.
The Ross remarks show well how the US leadership apply to the international law and what kind of attitude it has toward illegal hostile actions against any country around the globe.
