WOW! SYRIANS THANK TRUMP FOR SYRIAN ATTACK THEY CHANGE THEIR TWITTER PROFILES TO PHOTOS OF HIM: “WE LOVE YOU!”
Syrians are changing their profile pictures to a photo of Donald Trump, along with the caption: ‘We love you.’
The unprecedented outpouring of Syrians’ support for the US president comes after he authorised the launch of 59 Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian government airbase.
The target, Shayrat airbase, is believed to be the source of a devastating Sarin gas attack in Idlib province, which killed around 100 people.
According to Syrian state media, on top of the military deaths in Shayrat nine civilians, including four children, died as a result of the US airstrikes.
Speaking from Air Force One, Trump said: ‘Tonight I ordered a targeted military strike on the airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched.
‘It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons.’
He also referred to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad as a ‘dictator’.
The new avatars were first noticed by Syrian Twitter user Mostafa Mahamed.

‘Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack,’ he said. ‘It was a slow and brutal death for so many.’
