President Trump BLASTS Putin Over Syria in Tweet – Read It Here


President Donald Trump served up his biggest criticism yet of President Vladimir Putin and Russia over their suspected involvement in a chemical attack in Syria that killed at least 43 innocent civilians.

In a tweet sent early this morning, Trump promised to use missiles on Syria, and sent a not-so-subtle warning to Russia as their ally. The tweet is included below.

Trump has promised a strong response to Syria after their chemical attack on a rebel stronghold. Both Russia and Iran have military assets in Syria, in an effort to prop up Syrian President Bashir al-Assad. After the attack, Israel launched an airstrike on a Syrian air base, killing a number of Iranians.

Reuters reports.

Trump was reacting to a warning from Russia on Tuesday that any U.S. missiles fired at Syria over the deadly assault on a rebel enclave would be shot down and the launch sites targeted.

His comments raised fears of direct conflict over Syria for the first time between the two world powers backing opposing sides in the country’s protracted civil war, which has aggravated instability across the Middle East.

“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!’,” Trump wrote in a post on Twitter.

“You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!” Trump tweeted, referring to Moscow’s alliance with Assad.

The President then tried to reason with Russia, and even hit back at the Mueller Russia investigation.

In response, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said in a Facebook post that “smart missiles should fly towards terrorists, not towards the lawful government”.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said any U.S. missile salvo could be an attempt to destroy evidence of the reported gas attack in the Syrian town of Douma, for which Damascus and Moscow have denied any responsibility.
