Trump's actions judged too harshly

How disingenuous it is that so many people have such contempt for President Donald Trump and basically condemn him for actions taken against Syria, etc ("Military decisions shouldn't be made on impulse," April 20). If Hillary Clinton had been elected president, she would have done the very same things in the exact same process but the people on the political left would be cheering her for being a commander-in-chief willing to take on Bashar al-Assad for such a despicable killing of his people.

We do, indeed, have a double standard in this country.
