President Trump's decision to order airstrikes in Syria Thursday night, in response to the Syrian government's apparent chemical weapons attack on its own people, is drawing strong reactions from members of Congress.

Also Friday, Judge Neil Gorsuch officially became the newest associate justice on the Supreme Court, after Senate Republicans voted Thursday to allow Gorsuch to be confirmed with a simple majority of 51 votes.

Here & Now's Robin Young talks with NPR congressional reporter Scott Detrow (@scottdetrow) about congressional reaction to the Syria strike, and the Gorsuch confirmation.
