Why is the Trump administration calling attention to this bomb now? Is this another "feel good" moment for Americans? Another diversion? Or a display of our power to the Russians and North Koreans?
To answer your question with a serious answer, Trump has a very deep need for positive attention. Ultimately all his decisions are centered around feeding his ego. His addiction is just as bad a heroin addict need for a daily fix. It's possible that what he needs and what is wise decision provide the same results, but it's a huge risk, because of it is far easier to feed his ego with actions that only have short term solutions (ie like a sugar high). If dropping bombs gets him positive attention from world leaders and the American people, then he will keep doing it. However, there will be a point where there is one military action too many, and the results we see on the news will be far far worse than gassed children.
I don't make the analogy to a heroin addict lightly because I fully perceive that he's not able to consider the repercussions of any of his discussions. He can't handle doing the right thing if that means turning down feeding his ego. Ego, like heroin, wins 100% of the time, no matter what the cost might be. He'll tell coal miners he'll bring back prosperity because they love him for saying it, but the reality for coal miners is that it's unlikely they will ever see a rise in jobs because it's beyond Trumps ability to deliver. He misleads them to feed his ego, which is so, so sad. When they see he can't' deliver, he will, likely he always does, pointing the finger at others blaming some nebulous person, or country, as being the root of their problems, and he's still on their side.
