WASHINGTON (AP) Defying Russian warnings against U.S. military strikes in Syria, President Donald Trump said today that missiles will be coming in response to Syrias suspected chemical attack that killed at least 40 people.
Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria, Trump tweeted. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and smart! You shouldnt be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!
Trump did not detail what a strike would look like, or whether these would be U.S. missiles. The tweet came as Trump administration officials have consulted with global allies on a possible joint military response to Syrias alleged poison gas attack. Trump canceled a foreign trip in order to manage a crisis that is testing his vow to stand up to Syrian President Bashar Assad.
