“I ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapon capabilities of Syrian dictator of Bashar al-Assad,” Trump said.

Trump said the strikes were a “combined operation” with France and the United Kingdom and that the U.S. is “prepared to sustain this response” until the Syrian regime discontinues its use of chemical agents.
He added that the U.S. would not have an “indefinite presence” in Syria.
He added: “Hopefully someday we’ll get along with Russia, and maybe even Iran, but maybe not.”
On Wednesday, Trump tweeted about the “nice and new and ‘smart'” missiles that would be fired in Syria, adding, “get ready Russia.”
