(CNSNews.com) - In a pair of tweets sent out this morning--after ordering missile strikes on Syria last night--President Donald Trump decalred "Mission Accomplished" and said that the U.S. military "will soon be...the finest our country had ever had."

The president had appeared on national television on Friday night to announce that the U.S., Great Britain and France were acting together to retaliate with military force against the regime of Syrian dictator Bashar al Assad for using chemical weapons.

"A perfectly executed strike last night," Trump said in the first tweet. "Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine military. Could not have had a better result. Mission Accomplished!"

"So proud of our great military which will soon be, after spending the billions of fully approved dollars, the finest that our country has ever had," Trump said in a second tweet. "There won't be anything, or anyone, even close!"
