Ron Paul says that President Trump is a purveyor of “fake news.” He is a “master” at it, says the former Republican presidential candidate.
Washington is planning to attack the regime of President Bashar al-Assad as retribution for ill-founded accusations of an upcoming planned chemical weapons attack by the Syrian government against its civilians.
Ron Paul Institute reports:
Last night the White House released a shock statement that the Syrian government was about to use chemical weapons “again” on its citizens and that the United States would launch a massive response.

At the time, the AP reported that neither the State Department nor the Pentagon or intelligence agencies seemed to know anything about it.
US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley warned that any attack on citizens of Syria would be automatically blamed on Assad (as well as Russia and Iran).
Any further attacks done to the people of Syria will be blamed on Assad, but also on Russia & Iran who support him killing his own people.

It seems Trump is ready for a massive attack on the Syrian government — coincidentally just a day after a major piece by Seymour Hersh showed that the US intelligence community knew that the April “chemical attack” was no such thing but that Trump launched 59 Tomahawk missiles anyway.
Trump constantly accuses CNN of purveying “fake news,” but he has shown himself to also be a master at fake news. Something they have in common.
