Michael Hayden: Syria Attack Signaled 'Remarkable Flip' for Trump

Former CIA Director Michael Hayden said Donald Trump's ordered missile strike marked a major departure in the president's foreign policy philosophy.

His comments came during an appearance on CNN's "New Day."

"What's really remarkable (is) that's about as far away from 'America First' as a philosophy as you can get," he said.

"That's America doing something unilaterally for what I call the good of the order, rather than a narrowly defined American self-interest. It was a remarkable flip from the man we saw in the campaign."

President Trump had ordered the attack on a Syrian airfield in response to a nerve gas attack widely blamed on government forces, Fox News reported.

"The core point was that Assad broke an incredibly important international norm, which was the intentional use of chemical weapons, and a particularly vile weapon sarin, against his own people," Hayden said.
