A former White House advisor tells LBC the Syria attack is a classic Trump move: "Like the kid in the schoolyard, he punches first and then has a conversation."

On Friday, the President of the United States launched a series of missile attacks on Syria following the chemical attack last week,

Speaking to Nick Ferrari, Dr Pippa Malmgren, a former Advisor to George W Bush, said Donald Trump regularly acts before thinking about the consequences.

She said: "I think the White House position was to say that they're capable of decisive action, but that they don't want to get into a long strategic engagement.
