U-Turn: Trump Seems to Continue Obama Administration ‘Plan to Divide Syria’

US President Donald Trump’s change of heart towards Syrian leader Bashar Assad indicates that the new US presidential administration seems to continue Barack Obama administration’s plan of dividing Syria, Italian activist Patrizio Ricci told Sputnik.

Commenting on the reported chemical attack in Syrian Idlib, United States President Donald Trump called Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad an “animal.” Previously, the Pentagon launched a missile strike on an air base in Homs, in response to the Idlib incident. Washington and its allies have blamed the incident on Damascus.

This marked a U-turn in Trump’s foreign policy, from the initial promises to focus on domestic policy and cooperate with Moscow in the fight against terrorism.

In an interview with Sputnik Italy, Patrizio Ricci, co-founder of the National Committee for Peace in Syria, shared his thoughts on the situation, suggesting that Trump continues the policy of the previous administration.

“If Trump’s real goal was to remove Assad from power, he would not escalate the situation with a missile attack. It looks like Trump continues the plan of the previous administration to divide Syria into zones of control,” Ricci said.
