On August 18, Obama called for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to give up power and resign after launching reprisal attacks against his own people. In a coordinated condemnation with European allies and the UN, the president “ordered the freezing of all Syrian assets within American jurisdiction, banned imports of Syrian oil, and barred American citizens from having any business dealings with the Syrian government.”
