Charles Krauthammer called President Trump's 59-missile strike on a Syrian airbase "a total contradiction to Bannonism."

Krauthammer said White House adviser Stephen Bannon trumpeted a theme of "America First," in that he would not support global actions that weren't directly in America's interest.

He said that by choosing to strike back at Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Trump showed that he is not against taking decisive action for purely humanitarian reasons.

"The strike on Syria was a total contradiction to Bannonism," he said, adding that 'Bannonism' is "in decline" in the White House.

Krauthammer also expressed criticism at administration leaks showing Bannon appearing to be at odds with fellow adviser Jared Kushner.

Kushner is the husband of first daughter Ivanka Trump.
