South Carolina’s federal delegation on Friday said they stand behind President Trump’s decision to strike a Syrian air base that was used to launch a chemical attack which left nearly 80 people dead.

“Where President Obama failed to enforce his own ‘red line’ in regards to the use of chemical weapons, President Trump’s decision to act in the national interest and respond with swift resolve showed the world the United States is once again a nation that follows through on its commitments,” U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-2nd Congressional District, said.
