Gorka on US Warning to Assad: 'When the President Draws Red Line, He Means It'
Dr. Sebastian Gorka, deputy assistant to President Donald Trump, appeared on Fox Business Network this morning to react to reports that the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad could be planning another chemical weapons attack.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer released a statement Monday night, warning that if Assad conducts another mass murder of civilians, he and his military will "pay a heavy price."

Gorka said the administration won't reveal what that "heavy price" might be because they don't believe in giving away their game plan.
He did say, however, that a chemical attack would have very serious consequences.
"When the president draws a red line, he means it," Gorka said.
He pointed out that just several months ago, Trump ordered a military strike on a Syrian government airbase in response to a chemical weapons attack that killed dozens of civilians.
"We are not going to say what we will or will not do, because then the enemy uses that against you," Gorka said. "That's not how we play it in this White House."
He added this isn't just about preventing the Assad government from killing civilians, but also sending a message to Assad's allies, including Russia and Iran.
