President Trump to Look at Re-Entering Trans-Pacific Partnership

He later added, "The President must get Congressional approval before attacking Syria-big mistake if he does not!"

But at 9:01:30 p.m. Friday, Trump delivered a televised address to the nation announcing the strikes were underway. And many lawmakers on Capitol Hill seem content to leave it that way. That could pose a challenge to the White House because these members may resist any USA -endorsed changes at this stage of the process.

Trump chastised Syria's two main allies, Russia and Iran, for their roles in supporting "murderous dictators", and noted that Russian President Vladimir Putin had guaranteed a 2013 worldwide agreement for Assad to get rid of all of his chemical weapons. "His regime's unconscionable brutality against innocent civilians can not be tolerated". "There is no military solution to the crisis".

Macron said the attack was "limited to the Syrian regime's facilities enabling the production and employment of chemical weapons".

Like Obama before him, Trump has clearly decided that the United States has few interests in Syria and little ability to stop the long civil war, which at the moment the Assad regime, Russian Federation and Iran seem to be winning.

Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed she had ordered British armed forces to conduct co-ordinated and targeted strikes to degrade the Syrian regime's chemical weapons capability and deter their use. He carefully added, "I await a briefing on the scope and success of the mission".

Nobody expects a coherent and consistent trade policy from President Donald Trump. No nation can succeed in the long run by promoting rogue states, brutal tyrants, and murderous dictators.

But unusual contours of the war in Syria have created some odd alliances in Washington.


Mr Michael Miller, chairman of US Wheat Associates and a farmer in Washington, said rejoining the deal would allow his industry to compete on a level playing field with competitors in Australia and Canada, which both stayed in the accord.

But it also created another group of unusual bedfellows - liberals and conservatives upset that Trump neglected to consult Congress. At a meeting on Thursday to discuss the plight of American farmers, Trump said he was thinking again. No formal approval was sought.

Through it all, USA and Western officials said it was clear Trump meant to take military action. "The solution must be political". Republican Rep. Justin Amash of MI tweeted that the strikes are "unconstitutional, illegal and reckless".

And even if member countries were on board, Congress might not be. To do otherwise, the letter said, violated the separation of powers outlined by the Constitution. Senate Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., echoed those sentiments, tweeting "the barbarism from the Assad regime will not be tolerated".

And for the second time in his presidency, those visceral images helped propel Trump toward military strikes in a country he sees as a trap for the United States. A sarin gas attack a year ago killed more than 80 people in the town of Khan Shaykhun, and two days later Trump authorized launch of dozens of cruise missiles on a Syrian air base. One, national economic reasons, particularly agricultural interests, other interests of US workers who want to have access to these fast-growing Asia-Pacific markets. "We look forward to the day we can bring our warriors home, and great warriors they are".

The NYPD said it is closely monitoring the situation in Syria.

Today, Trump blamed Mueller's "Fake & Corrupt Russia Investigation" for the current hostile relationship between the USA and Russia.

Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff, D-Calif., voiced concern that the strikes could prompt "serious escalation". He has not said precisely what provisions he would want changed. Trump also delivered a message to Iran and Russian Federation.
