"And we made a determination to do it, so the missiles were on the way".
The strike, which was in response a chemical attack on a rebel-held town that the United States has blamed on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, has been widely praised by the worldwide community, but denied by Russian Federation, a close Assad ally.
"The president said he was sitting at the table with Xi and had just finished dinner". Trump laid part of the blame for the horrific mass murder on the Obama presidency, claiming that the attack was "a outcome of the past administration's weakness and irresolution".

"Then he said to me".
"He paused for 10 seconds, then he asked the interpreter to please say it again. I think Syria would be a lot better off right now than it has been".
Soon afterward, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that the United States would not be personally prioritizing the removal of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, who's been definitively held responsible for the nerve gas attack, but that "steps are underway" for a global collaborative effort to remove him from power.
