Trump Warns Syria and Russia That Missile Strikes ‘Are Coming’

President Trump appears to have confirmed that the U.S. will unleash missile strikes on Syria after Russia warned that it would retaliate if the U.S. was to launch an attack. A Russian official warned earlier Wednesday that American missiles would be downed and the sources of the strikes could be attacked if there is a U.S. missile attack against Syria. On Twitter on Wednesday morning, Trump hit back: “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!’ You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!” The deepening crisis in Syria comes after a chemical attack suspected to have been carried out by President Assad affected 500 people and killed over 70.
