Day 77. On President Donald J. Trump’s 77th day as POTUS, he ordered a targeted military strike on the airfield in Syria where the chemical attack was launched. Specifically, he ordered the launch of over 50 tomahawk missiles on the Assad-regime airfield. This marks the first U.S. attack against the Syrian regime since the civil war erupted over six (6) years ago. An estimated 80-people, including women and children, were killed in the suspected toxic chemical attack in Syria’s northern province of Idlib. Over 500 civilians were injured.

A staggering 1 million of the total 2.3 million incarcerated individuals in the United States are black men.
