COLUMBIA, SC (WTAT-TV) — South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster released a message on Twitter Friday evening showing support for U.S. military in airstrikes on Syria.

“Please join Peggy & me in praying for the safety of our armed forces, as well as our allies in the UK & France,” he said. “President Trump’s decisive action & leadership on the world stage sends a clear message that the U.S. won’t stand for the atrocities committed against innocent Syrians.”

President Trump spoke to Americans just after 9:00 p.m. Friday to announce precision airstrikes on Syria in reponse to Assad’s use of chemical weapons.
