Pres. Trump Warning Russia of a Missile Attack In Response to Syrian Assault
President Trump is warning Russia that he plans on using missiles to respond the chlorine gas attack that killed more than 40 people in Syria.
The President tweeted Wednesday morning saying…
Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!

Russia’s foreign ministry has responded to the president’s threat saying any missile launched by the U.S. and its allies will destroy any evidence of the suspected chemical weapons attack.
Russia is Syria’s main ally and they’re saying they will shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria and that they will view any air-strike on Syria as a war crime, which could trigger a military clash.
Chemical weapons experts are on their way to Syria to investigate the alleged chlorine gas attack that killed more than 40 people.
The United Nations Security Council has already met four times this week but has yet to determine who is behind the deadly assault.
Tensions are rising, with the possibility of the U.S., France and Great Britain launching a joint military response.
Russia, Syria’s main ally, warns there will be grave repercussions if the U.S. and its allies take military action.
People in Syria say they are preparing for a possible strike.
President Trump has canceled his trip to South America to deal with the situation in Syria.
He’s expected to hold more meetings at the White House before a final decision is made.
