Syrians are changing their profile pictures to Donald Trump

In the past 24 hours, a US airstrike of 59 Tomahawk missiles have killed a number of Syrian troops.

The attack was focused at a government airbase, a location thought to be the source of a devastating chemical weapon attack which killed around 100 people in Idlib Province.

Syrian state media is reporting that in addition to the military deaths, nine civlians, including four children, were killed in US airstrike.

Donald Trump announced that he had authorised the attack, labelling President Assad a 'dictator'.

Tonight I ordered a targeted military strike on the airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched,” the President added.

“It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons.

In the wake of the attack, Syrians have been changing their profile images to Donald Trump's picture.

Spotted by Mostafa Mahamed (@AbuSulaymanMM3), he tweeted:

The caption reportedly reads 'We love you,' according to the Independent.

Mostafa followed up the original tweet, commenting:

This attack was clearly an attempt to win over hearts and minds. Only the naive will be fooled to believe that Trump has a heart.

I am confident that most people in the world (not just Syrians) can see that Trump is not the good Samaritan that he is posing  as.
