Trump says US not going to get involved in Syria

Donald Trump's cruise missile strike on a Syrian airbase was ordered "during dessert" with visiting Chinese leader Xi Jinping, he said in an interview aired on Wednesday.

Lastly, Trump said during a press conference Wednesday that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) was "no longer obsolete", despite describing it as such during his campaign for what he saw as its failure to address terrorism. -Chinese trade imbalance and efforts to prevent Pyongyang from developing a nuclear missile capable of reaching the United States.

"Yes, heading toward Syria, and I want you to know that", Trump went on, explaining that he didn't want Xi to go home for the night only to find out from someone else about the bombing. China helped North Korea fight a US-led coalition to a stalemate in the Korean War and remains the isolated nation's principal trading partner. "And President Xi was enjoying it", Trump said, setting the scene for the moment he broke the dramatic news to his Chinese counterpart. The accusation had formed a basis of Trump's argument for lost American jobs, on the grounds that an undervalued currency was boosting Chinese exports and leading to artificially low prices, all at USA manufacturers' expense. But this does not appear to mean a change in China's fundamental North Korea policy framework.

It's rare for American leaders to link trade or currency disputes to broader global security efforts against countries such as North Korea.

So we're not going into Syria, but neither are we going to tolerate the tactics Assad has been using for six years. That will be all right, too. Trump said he was ready to use force, and not just if Assad uses chemical weapons again, but he left open questions about other provocation. Chinese officials worked for weeks behind-the-scenes to build ties with Trump and his family, before a February phone call between the two leaders in which he reaffirmed long-standing USA policy on Taiwan.

The opposing fortunes of the two key American relationships were laid bare in a U.N. Security Council showdown Wednesday.

Trump hailed China's abstention. He previously criticized former President Barack Obama for not doing so himself.

And so it is - these days - with Russian Federation and China. Trump sent tweets this week praising Xi for committing to help restrain North Korea, which may be on the verge of a sixth nuclear test. Beijing is Pyongyang's closest ally. If they are unable to do so, the US, with its allies, will!

Trump has given heft to the USA demand with shows of force. USA spending, too, has tapered off in recent years. The next report is supposed to come out this week.

In less than two weeks, the Trump administration has defended 7 different positions concerning the Syrian Arab Republic [1].

"The vast amount of coal that comes out of North Korea going to China, they turned back the boats".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on the Senate floor Friday that the Trump administration should identify its objectives for "dealing with the Assad regime in a manner that preserves the institutions of government".

"That the ships are locked and loaded, what do you do and we made a determination to do it, so the missiles were on the way", Trump said.
