Trump to Address Nation from the White House

Trump Says He Has Directed Precision Strikes in Syria

The US president also criticized Russian Federation for partnering with a "gas killing animal", referring to Syrian President Bashar Assad.

"So much Fake News about what is going on in the White House", Trump first tweeted, adding that the state of the West Wing is "very calm and calculated".

British government officials said shortly after that May and Trump had spoken and agreed to keep working closely on an worldwide response to the use of chemical weapons in Syria. Syrian activists, rescuers along with medics claimed the attack from Douma killed at least forty people, with families discovered suffocated in households and lands.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Mr. Trump held a meeting Thursday afternoon with his team to discuss the situation. Trump himself tweeted that "Attorney-client privilege is dead!"

"Because we haven't laid out any specific actions that we plan to take, I can't tell you exactly what needs we would have to go to Congress with", she said.

But a special hotline for the USA and Russian militaries to communicate about operations in Syria is active and being used by both sides, Moscow said Thursday. Initial reports indicated the use of chlorine gas, possibly in addition to the nerve agent Sarin.


Whatever you think of the Trump administration, that's an astonishing paragraph.

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, based in the Netherlands, announced it was sending a fact-finding team to the site of the attack outside Damascus, and it was due to arrive Saturday. And as Trump's party was rocked by upheaval on Capitol Hill, White House staffers explored whether he has the legal authority to fire the men leading the investigation into his administration and, as underscored by the seizure of documents from his private lawyer, his business and personal life.

Early in the daytime Wednesday, protection Secretary Jim Mattis said the US military was "assessing intelligence" about who had been responsible to its assault.

Asked about the risks of US military retaliation, Mattis cited two concerns, starting with avoiding civilian casualties.

Disregarding his own insistence that he would never tip his hand to military strategy, he seemed to suggest that he would launch airstrikes.

"I will salute anything (that) comes from President Trump on this action and I hope it will lead to some kind of significant changes on the ground", said Mahmoud Barazi, a Syrian-American physician living in Houston. "We need to know where that's going, what the objective of it is before we take that act".
