(Alex Pfeiffer, The Daily Caller) – The same day as White House spokesman Sean Spicer said the “Trump doctrine” means not being the “world’s policemen,” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that the U.S. will protect “innocents anywhere in the world.”
The comments from Tillerson came during a ceremony Monday at a memorial for victims of the Nazi regime in Italy. “We rededicate ourselves to holding to account any and all who commit crimes against the innocents anywhere in the world,” the secretary of state said. “This place will serve as an inspiration to us all.”
Tillerson made the remark as the Trump administration is trying to define its foreign policy stance. The U.S. attacked a Syrian airfield Thursday where planes allegedly took off from to deliver a chemical weapons attack that left over 80 dead.
