The Trump administration fired 59 cruise missiles at a Syrian air field on Friday in response to a chemical attack on the town of Khan Shaykhun last Tuesday.
A CBS poll said 57 percent of Americans approved of last week's US air strike targeting the Syrian regime's air field. Washington says its missiles destroyed twenty percent of the regime's fighter planes.
The strike was in response to the chemical attack in Khan Shaykhun, a town in Idlib, in which more than eighty people died.
However, some critics of the US strike believe President Donald Trump should stick to his "America First" policy, while others argue that he should have sought Congressional approval before carrying out the strikes.
"President Trump should come to Congress and come up with a whole plan. You can't just do a one-off," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said. "I'd be very leery of repeating Iraq's mistake and putting a whole lot of troops in Syria."
Republican senator, Lindsey Graham, argued the Trump administration's decision was "on sound legal footing."
