Trump Vows 'Forceful' Response After Syria Attack

Syria Trump and Isolationism

The United States, backed by Britain and France, has said it is ready to act with or without support from the United Nations, where the Security Council was to vote as early as Tuesday on rival U.S. and Russian proposals to probe chemical attacks in Syria.

The assessment also suggested that a never agent was used in the suspected poison attack, but further evidence was needed to determine the type of agent, U.S. government sources told the news agency.

In his tweets Sunday, Trump called Assad an "animal" and delivered a rare personal criticism of Russian President Vladimir Putin for supporting him.

"The UK utterly condemns the use of chemical weapons in any circumstances and we must urgently establish what happened on Saturday", she said.

Last week Trump said he wanted to pull USA troops out of Syria, though his advisers have urged him to wait to ensure Islamic State militants are defeated and to prevent Assad's ally Iran from gaining a foothold there.

Trump on Monday promised a decision on Syria within hours, although he did not say when a decision would be implemented. "Russian Federation wants to undermine our interests at every turn".

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said in February that Britain should consider joining military action against Assad's regime if there is fresh "incontrovertible" evidence he has used chemical weapons against his own people.

Their evacuation, along with their families, came as the United Nations Security Council prepared to meet later on Tuesday to discuss a suspected poison gas attack on Douma over the weekend.

He added: "If it's Russian Federation, if it's Syria, if it's Iran, if it's all of them together, we'll figure it out and we'll know the answers quite soon". Russian Federation said there is no evidence Syria carried out such an attack.

President says all options are on the table as he weighs US retaliation for suspected gas attack in Syria; Kristin Fisher reports from Washington.

Trump Threatens Another Round of Tariffs Against China as Tensions Escalate
Trump argues China's trade practices have led to the closure of American factories and the loss of millions of American jobs. Kudlow on Thursday said the administration was involved in "delicate negotiations" that might forestall the need for tariffs.

U.S. ambassador Nikki Haley accused Russian Federation of having "the blood of Syrian children" on its hands after Mr Trump said that "nothing's off the table" in dealing with the alleged outrage.

A joint statement by the civil defense group and the medical society said that more than 500 people, mostly women and children, were brought to medical centers complaining of difficulty breathing, foaming at the mouth and burning sensations in the eyes.

Trump's decision to skip the South America trip marks the first time an American president has not attended the summit.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says his country will hand over control of the strategic town of Afrin - which Turkish troops seized from Syrian Kurdish forces last month - to the people of Afrin "when the time is right".

Trump will be joined at the White House on Monday by John Bolton, who takes over as White House national security adviser.

Amid the tough talk from the White House, the US military appeared to be in position to carry out any attack order. This reflects a view in the White House that deeper Russian and Iranian involvement in Syria have complicated calculations about a response to any US military attack, according to the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.

The USS Donald missile destroyer was sailing towards Syria as the White House weighed up its options.

Pence "will expand the regional coalition against Venezuela's dictatorship and demonstrate why the US should remain Latin America's economic partner of choice", Quintana said. "To me there's not much of a doubt, but the generals will figure it out", Trump said. It's armed with Tomahawk cruise missiles, the weapon of choice in a USA attack one year ago on an airfield in Syria following an alleged sarin gas attack on civilians. Ali Akbar Velayati, an aide to Iran's supreme leader, spoke upon arrival in the Syrian capital on Tuesday, and was quoted by Iran's state-run news agency IRNA.

Seven Iranians were among the estimated 14 people killed in the Monday missile strike on a Syrian base, and a senior Iranian official visiting Damascus said the attack "will not remain unanswered". An attack with chlorine, which can be used as a weapon but is not outright banned by the treaty, could raise precedent issues, as there have been numerous recent allegations of chlorine attacks in Syria that have drawn no response from the Trump administration.

Iran is one of Mr. Assad's strongest backers and has sent thousands of troops and allied militia members to support his forces.
