Trump to Address Nation from the White House

Trump to Address Nation from the White House

By "Gas Killing Animal", Trump was referring to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

"Final decisions haven't been made yet on that front", said the White House Spokesperson Sarah Sanders at a daily briefing on Wednesday afternoon. Syrian activists, rescuers along with medics claimed the attack from Douma killed at least forty people, with families discovered suffocated in households and lands.

"A combined operation with the armed forces of France and the United Kingdom is now underway", he continued.

However, he also emphasized that Syrian use of chemical weapons should not be tolerated. "We're looking very, very seriously, very closely at the whole situation", he told reporters.

A White House official grew agitated with a reporter Wednesday evening when asked why the president did not lead that meeting, especially given his threat of an imminent attack on a sovereign country and the Russian Federation taunting.

Mr. Trump claimed the USA will have a "sustained" response to curtail Syria.

The Trump administration says the order applies to a relatively small pot of money that already requires compliance with immigration law and does not threaten other federal funding.

Inspectors with the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) as of Thursday were on their way to Syria, and are scheduled to begin their work Saturday, further complicating the timing for any strike.

The Trump administration will try to convince a federal appeals court that the president's executive order threatening to cut funding from states and cities that limit cooperation with USA immigration authorities was narrow and legal.

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis also remained cautious about taking military action against Syria, saying Washington was still "assessing intelligence" about the alleged chemical weapons attack.

"On a strategic level, it's how do we keep this from escalating out of control, if you get my drift on that", he said.

Although the president declared that his White House was "calm and calculated", aides said decisions happen fast and with even less warning than usual when Trump feels backed into a corner. More broadly, he doubted the wisdom of bombing.

Disregarding his own insistence that he would never tip his hand to military strategy, he seemed to suggest that he would launch airstrikes. "Because we haven't laid out any specific actions we plan to take I can't tell you exactly what needs we would have to go to Congress with".
