Trump to consider rejoining TPP to step up pressure on China

Donald Trump and Peter Navarro

He also assured the nation he did not want to leave the U.S.in Syria indefinitely. The sky looked orange over eastern Damascus apparently as a result of fires caused by the missiles hitting Syria. "The attack is the blatant violation of worldwide laws, as well as ignoring the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria", foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi said according to Iran's state news agency.

Syrian media reported that Syrian defenses hit 13 rockets south of Damascus. Shortly after the one-hour attack ended, vehicles with loudspeakers roamed the streets of Damascus blaring nationalist songs.

Mr Turnbull criticised Russian Federation for its veto of a UN Security Council resolution this week that sought to respond to reports of chemical weapon attacks.

The widely broadcast celebrations and the hastily organized police deployment in Douma appeared to be the government's response to the airstrikes.

Leaders in Syria, Iran and Russian Federation denied that government forces had used chemical weapons, and accused rescue workers and the rebels who had controlled Douma of fabricating the videos to win global sympathy.

She called the action a "limited and targeted strike that does not further escalate tensions in the region" that will "send a clear signal to anyone else who believes they can use chemical weapons with impunity".

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.

LG Report: Andrew McCabe Repeatedly Leaked And Lied About It
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders added her own condemnation of McCabe and Comey during the White House press briefing. He said that when he believed his answers to the inspector general were misunderstood, he returned and tried to correct them.

Trump says he has asked US partners "to take greater responsibility for securing their home region, including contributing large amounts of money for the resources, equipment and all of the anti-ISIS effort".

Increased engagement from our friends, including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Egypt, and others can ensure that Iran does not profit from the eradication of ISIS. Like the Trump measures, the TPP was aimed at the most fundamental level at holding back Chinese technological development and ensuring that the USA would maintain its dominant position through a system of measures to protect so-called intellectual property rights.

He says the U.S.is working a combined operation with the United Kingdom and France in a coordinated effort from the sea against numerous targets, including chemical weapons facilities.

The United States and European allies launched strikes Friday against Syrian targets as President Donald Trump sought to punish President Bashar Assad for a suspected chemical attack near Damascus last weekend that killed more than 40 people.

"Why do we keep broadcasting when we are going to attack Syria", Trump tweeted in 2013, as President Barack Obama faced a similar decision to retaliate against the Assad regime for its use of chemical weapons. Trump called out the two nations, saying they should withdraw their support for Syria's "barbarism and brutality". "They will lose years of research and development, storage and equipment", Dunford said. "Syria continues to engage in and provide a base for murderous actions, including those of Iran, that put its territory, its forces and its leadership at risk", the official said. All three targets were related to chemical weapons capabilities.

Mattis' caution, however, did not mean that Trump would back off from a strike at some point. He said the three nations have "marshaled their righteous power".

The Russian ambassador, Vasily A. Nebenzya, accused the United States and its allies of reckless warmongering.
