Though global investigators have not completed an investigation into the suspected poison gas attack that reportedly killed more than 45 people on Saturday, Trump swiftly placed the blame on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, joining leaders from countries including the United Kingdom and France who have called for "strong" action against Syria.
"As the President noted on April 8, the chemical weapons attack by the Syrian regime against innocent civilians in Duma, Syria on April 7 was horrifying, and demands an immediate response from the global community", Pahon added.
Trump tweeted, referring to Moscow's alliance with Assad.
He added that the deteriorating Russia-US relationship does not have to be that way. Russian Federation needs us to help with their economy, something that would be very easy to do, and we need all nations to work together.
