Trump admits he wanted to kill Syria’s Assad

President Trump said Tuesday he had ’a shot’ to take out Syrian President Bashar al-Assad but didn’t because the then-Defense Secretary opposed it. ’I would’ve rather taken him out. I had him all set. Mattis didn’t want to do it’, Trump said responding to a question around the claim from Bob Woodward’s book. In 2018, Trump said an assassination of Assad was ’never even discussed’.
