Trump Mulls Response to Chemical Attack in Syria

Posted: Wednesday, April 11, 2018 – 1:28 PM

(AFP) US President Donald Trump considers Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad and his Russian ally responsible for a suspected chemical attack in rebel-held Douma and is still mulling a response, the White House said Wednesday.

“The president holds Assad and the Russians responsible for the attack,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters.

“All options are on the table,” Sanders said when asked about a potential US riposte. “Final decisions have not been made on that front.”

Trump earlier Wednesday warned that “missiles will be coming” in response to the alleged chemical atrocity in Syria.
