The U.S. military's missile attack on a Syrian air base Thursday night sent a message to other countries who stir up trouble in the world, former New York City Police commissioner Bernie Kerik told Newsmax TV.

During an appearance on "Newsmax Prime," Kerik told host Miranda Khan the onslaught of five dozen Tomahawk missiles was more than a physical attack.

"I think this is 100 percent the opposite of the last administration, where there was a line drawn in the sand and then everybody tramped over that line time after time after time," Kerik said.

"This president is not going to have it. He sent that message and I think if I was North Korea, if I was Iran, if I was some of these other countries that pose a threat in their own regions, in their own backyards like these countries do, I'd be looking at this having second thoughts on what I want to do from this point forward."

President Donald Trump's decision to give the green light on the mission came days after dozens of Syrian civilians were killed in a chemical weapons attack that the U.S. believes occurred at the hands of the Syrian government.

Trump said the gas attack, which left several young children dead, changed his view on Syria.

Kerik noted Trump's decision was likely influenced after he spoke with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and Jordan's King Abdullah II.

"He just met with these guys and these are two men that are worried about the wrong jurisdictions of their own countries," Kerik said. "They're worried about Iran, they're worried about Russia, they're worried about China, they're worried about a number of different threats in the region and I think the president had to send a message."
