More than six years since the conflict in Syria began, almost a half million people are dead, 6.3 million are displaced inside the country, and 4.8 million refugees have sought safety in neighboring countries.
The Trump administration is entrenched in a series of court battles over the president's revised executive order on travel and refugees, which would temporarily ban travel to the U.S.by nationals of six majority Muslim countries - including Syria - and would temporarily halt all refugee resettlement.
Trump's tweet did not sit well with "The Lead" host, so he replied, "How do you feel about his proposed ban on Syrian refugees from entering the US?" Seeking a better life for herself in the United States, she came to California in 2014. We want to stay in our country. With all due respect, this is hypocrisy, if you really care, help us stay in our country.

Some of Trump's supporters didn't take kindly to him calling her out so bluntly, with one supporter even accusing him of being an "internet troll".
Finally, as reported by the NYT, cartoonist Scott Adams, creator of "Dilbert", claimed on his website on Thursday - prior to the missile strike - that the Syrian chemical attack was a "manufactured event".
