Clinton, who spoke at the Women in the World conference in NY on Thursday, called for the U.S. Congress to launch an investigation into the matter.

She said Trump's reasoning for the airstrikes conflicted with the ban on refugees from six Muslim-majority countries.

The U.S. launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at a military airfield in Homs.

"By the time they finished with me, I was Typhoid Mary", said Clinton. "The leaders we choose matter". Kristof was referring to the current commander-in-chief, President Donald Trump.

"I don't take any pleasure in seeing the kind of chaotic functioning [of the current administration]", said Clinton."Here's what I don't understand I don't understand the commitment to hurt so many people that this administration, this White House seems to be pursing".
