In the week since President Trump ordered a military strike in Syria, some of the president's most vocal supporters have turned into his harshest critics. Among them are libertarian and far-right voters who say their support for the president was, in large measure, based on the America-first, non-interventionist statements Trump made during his campaign.

Here & Now's Robin Young talks about the reaction with Justin Raimondo (@JustinRaimondo), editorial director of the online publication, Anti War, a website dedicated to anti-war and non-intervention issues.

This segment aired on April 13, 2017.
