商務長官の自慢話: Trump のシリアへのミサイル攻撃は晩餐会の余興だった

はじめに


・「シリアへのミサイル攻撃は人命が失われるため、苦しい決断だった」と Trump は記者に語っていたが、実は「晩餐会の余興だった」。 このように Trump 政権の商務長官である Wilbur Ross が自慢していた…という話を紹介する。

抜粋



In a statement that has sent shockwaves across the diplomatic establishment, Donald Trump's decision to launch 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles against Syria last month was just “after-dinner entertainment,” which “did not cost the president anything,” US commerce secretary Wilbur Ross said, shortly after President Trump called the attack a “tough decision.” Ross delivered the controversial comment while speaking at the Milken Institute Global Conference on Monday, according to Variety.

This is how Ross recalled Trump’s April 6 meeting with Xi at the President's Mar-A-Lago luxury resort in Palm Beach:

“Just as dessert was being served, the president explained to Mr. Xi he had something he wanted to tell him, which was the launching of 59 missiles into Syria,” Ross said. “It was in lieu of after-dinner entertainment.”

...

Ross' comments were delivered shortly after President Trump described his decision to attack Syria as a “tough” choice, since the “wrong people” could be killed. Trump made the comments during an interview with CBS’ Face the Nation host John Dickerson.

“But most importantly, you know, the decisions. Like, when I make the decision to go with Syria, the 59 Tomahawk missiles. Unbelievable technology. We have unbelievable talent. But those are tough decisions. Those aren’t, like, decisions that I’m going to buy a building…”

“Tough, why?” Dickerson interrupted.

“Because it’s human lives,” Trump continued. “You’re killing people. And you can kill the wrong people, too,” he added. It was not immediately clear if civilian casualties would double the entertainment value.
