Trump: Syria Attack Could Be 'Very Soon' or 'Not Soon at All'
Thursday, 12 April 2018 18:45 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

President Donald Trump insists he "never said when an attack on Syria would take place" in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack, tweeting that "it could be very soon or not so soon at all."

A day after warning that "missiles will be coming" to Syria, Trump also said Wednesday "the United States, under my Administration, has done a great job of ridding the region" of Islamic State.

@realDonaldTrump

 Never said when an attack on Syria would take place. Could be very soon or not so soon at all! In any event, the United States, under my Administration, has done a great job of ridding the region of ISIS. Where is our œThank you America?

The White House has said Trump is considering striking Syria with missiles as one option to retaliate for the latest alleged chemical attack blamed on Syria™s government forces. Scores of people were killed or sickened in the attack Saturday in the town of Douma, in eastern Ghouta on the outskirts of Damascus.

Officials and analysts in Washington say a robust, U.S.-led retaliatory military response is expected within days.
