Syrian chemical attack victim lashes out at CNN's Brooke Baldwin for trying to make him criticize Trump

An interview on CNN with a Syrian chemical attack victim did not go as expected as the guest lashed out, criticizing the host of the show, Obama, and other Americans criticizing Trump for dropping a bomb in Syria in retaliation for the recent chemical attack on the citizens of Syria.
CNN anchor, Brook Baldwin had a skype interview with Syrian Kassam Eid, who survived a 2013 chemical attack on Syria, to discuss recent occurences in Syria.

As the interview progressed, Kassam praised Trump's decision to fire missiles at Bashar al-Assad in retaliation for him attacking his own people. At a point, Brook brought up issues of Trump's travel ban on certain countries of which Syria was one of them, expecting Kassam to object to the ban like most people have, but he turned the table and instead  accused Brooke, Obama and other Americans of inaction.

Brooke started by saying:
"Clearly President Trump was motivated, as we all have compassion for these just horrible images of these babies who were killed. At the same time, this is a man who doesn't want Syrians to come to this country with this refugee ban."
To buttress her point, she played a clip in which Hillary Clinton says that President Trump should be more accepting of refugees and said:
"We cannot, in one breath, speak of protecting Syrian babies and in the next, close America's doors to them".
However, Kassam did not share her sentiment and he did not mince words as he told Brook that Syrian did not need anyone letting them into America, instead what they want is for Syria to be made a safe zone so that the citizens can stay home in their country.
"With all due respect," he began, "I didn't see each and every person who was demonstrating after the travel ban, I didn't see you three days ago when people were gassed to death. I didn't see you in 2013. I didn't see you raising your voice against President Obama's inaction in Syria that made us refugees get kicked out of Syria.  If you really care about refugees, if you really care about helping us, please help us stay in our country."
He continued:
 "We don't want to come to the United States. We want to stay in our country. With all due respect, this is hypocrisy, if you really care, help us stay in our country. We don't want to become refugees, help us establish safe zones. We want to stay in our country".
Kassam took it further by thanking President Trump, and said that he supports the efforts that he is making in the Middle East. He also thanked all of Trump's supporters and anyone who voted for him.

Below is a short clip from the interview.

Exactly my point, why accept them as refugees but can't help them stay in their own country. No place like home.

Trump did a good job by making sure that they send bombs to the Syrian airfield. Penis enlargement exercise program that works

The partiality in American government now is the highest in the history of d country
Unlike Nigeria here where we try to commend d good deeds of our leaders as d opposition, American just cant bring them selves to accept trump.

The media is so much against him that they are beginning to lose focus n credibility

I love his guts... Let the truth be said for once. CNN always after Trump. Someday those criticizing Trump will know what he's doing for America. I pray it won't be too late then.

Chinonso Chimeremeze said...

I said it but so many people with myopic mind never look 👀 beyond to see that TRUMP is real and was God sent, if you ask so many Nigerians why do they hate Trump so much none will give you a reasonable reason just hear 👂 say from Obama people, best politician ever

Who is he to speak in behalf of all Syrians? Clearly hiya desperation has made him War hungry.

Why blame President Obama, when he was the one who brought attention to the Syrian conflict, when he was the one who asked the world to support an intervention, and everyone rejected his request?

obioma said...

CNN is no more a reliable network! Dey ve completely lost dia credibility.24/7 dia daily agenda is to destructively criticise Trump Administration.Dey hate Trump so dearly.I prefer to watch Aljazeera.Aljazeera is reliable,respectful and credible! All CNN journalist has been potentially brainwashed!

My dear don't deceive yourself so many Africans love Trump, myself included. And Nigerians voted Trump very well. Maybe Some Akata people don't like Trump but trust me Real Africans love Trump and voted for him massively. Little wonder why Akata's hate Real Africans. Whites prefer real Africans to African Americans (Akatas)

Hypocrisy is when you know the truth and choose to relegate it to the background.

Anonymous said...

Exactly my point brother. Obama and Hillarynx Clinton were busy trotting the globe, canvassing for gay rights when Syrians where being murdered. Now she's talking of refugees. Who wants to be a refugee when millions are homeless in America

Well, let's hope it continues this way, cos the way it works, they help with one hand and they invade and take over with the other.

Obama was a failure, he focused on LGBT and was a coward issuing a red-line that was flouted and failed to act. Little wonder Putin was declared most powerful man in his time.

And who are you to speak as a Nigerian on behalf of a Syrian who is a chemical attack survivor. No dey buy matter wey no be ur matter. Unless u're a Syrian

Pee said...

I like Trump because he is a non conformist. He's very practical and I'm sure Russia is disappointed.

You'd have to be stupid. I have Syrian friends, I'm a globalist and I'm informed enough to speak on international relations. I think you might be confusing me with your father in the village, that hasn't even been to Lagos.
