Trump threatens missiles 'will be coming' to Syria

Trump said a combined operation with France and Britain was under way and that they were prepared to sustain the response until Syria stopped its use of chemical weapons.

The United States and several allies have centered blame on military forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad.

After Russia warned the United States against military strikes in Syria, President Donald Trump says missiles "will be coming".

Sanders says, "The president holds Syria and Russian Federation responsible for this chemical weapons attack".

But she had also made clear the president was holding both Syria and Russian Federation responsible for the attack.

"Speaking during a visit to Derby, the Labour leader was asked about the US President's tweet yesterday in which he said that 'nice and new and 'smart!" missiles would soon be fired toward Syria. "We're still working on this".

Both Trump and his defence secretary Jim Mattis abruptly cancelled upcoming travel plans Tuesday, as the USS Donald Cook - a guided-missile destroyer - moved to within striking range of Syria.

"The situation is tense", Peskov said, adding that Russian Federation is calling for an "unprejudiced and objective investigation before making judgements" on the suspected use of chemical weapons.

The U.S. has more than 2,000 troops in Syria, and the U.S. -led coalition has launched thousands of airstrikes against the country.

CORNISH: But President Obama didn't strike.

The Humboldt County Sheriff's Office also searched with its jet boat with a side scan sonar system, sheriff's officials said. On April 6, a vehicle was reportedly submerged in the Eel River, a little north of the town of Leggett, during heavy rains.

Donald Trump said the US's relationship with Russian Federation is worse than it has ever been in history. We are totally predictable.

Trump did not detail what a strike on Syria would look like, or whether these would be U.S. missiles.

U.S. officials told The Associated Press that the allies had weighed launching a military strike as early as the end of this week. Still, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., chairman of the Senate Armed Service Committee, said Trump's "premature" declaration emboldened Assad. There is no reason for this, he wrote, adding that "Russia needs us to help with their economy, something that would be very easy to do, and we need all nations to work together".

"People say Trump is insane and he would like carry out his threats", the woman said.

Did Russia respond to Trump's tweet?

Trump's decision to disclose his decision to strike as well as the kind of weaponry to be used in a future military operation was certain to frustrate military planners, who hold such information closely.

The deconfliction hotline was established in 2016 between USA central command in Qatar and its Russian equivalent in Syria. French president Emmanuel Macron called for a strong, joint response to the alleged chemical attack.

Macron said he had proof Assad's government was behind the attack on Saturday, while Damascus has denied involvement in the attack.

It comes as London has blamed Moscow for a nerve agent attack on a former double agent and his daughter in the English city of Salisbury last month.
