Obama’s red line bluff and ‘deal’ with Syria have empowered Putin: Russia hints at ‘real war’

Amid reports of another chemical weapons attack in Syria, President Donald Trump has called out Russian President Vladimir Putin for backing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in a series of tweets Sunday.

RELATED: Obama got rid of all Syria’s chemical weapons, right? Nope.

President Trump also dished out some blame to Obama, referencing the former president’s “Red Line” threat against “Animal Assad”.

In case you’re a bit fuzzy on the details, Obama failed to follow up on his threat. Instead he passed the wand to Putin, who smiled and waved and made all kinds of assurances — then allowed Assad to keep his chemical weapons. Assad has used this weapon-of-choice against his own people on numerous occasions.

President Obama’s ‘red-line’ was a bluff, and his brokered deal was a lie

Meanwhile, Obama and his administration swore up and down that they stuck a deal to get 100 percent of the chemical weapons out of Syria. “This problem sits right in the lap of the Obama administration.” said Glenn Beck on today’s show. “We now know that President Obama’s ‘red-line’ was a bluff, and his brokered deal was a lie. He has empowered Iran, Syria, [and] Russia.”

Watch the clip above to get Glenn’s take.

WATCH: This is the Maybach Ultimate Luxury SUV (2020)

Mercedes-Benz is presenting the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury. The design of the crossover, based on an exclusive high-end saloon and an SUV, follows the philosophy of Sensual Purity.

The show car combines the comfort and typical strengths of both body styles. These include the raised seating position and the athletic looks. The Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury is conceived as an electric car. Thanks to its four compact permanent-magnet synchronous motors, it offers fully variable all-wheel drive. The output from the powertrain is 550 kW (750 horsepower). The flat underfloor battery has a usable capacity of around 80 kWh, producing an NEDC range of over 500 kilometres (according to EPA: over 200 miles). The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155mph).

The fast-charging function is also convenient: thanks to DC charging based on the CCS standard, the system allows a charging capacity of up to 350 kW. In just five minutes, enough power can be charged to achieve an additional range of around 100 kilometres (62 miles).
