Syria: "All Options Still On The Table'' - White House"

President Donald Trump's comments about sanctuary cities are being scrutinized at a federal appeals court hearing about the legality of his executive order threatening to cut funding to states and cities that limit cooperation with US immigration authorities.

Vice President Mike Pence will travel to Peru in Trump's stead for the Summit of the Americas, press secretary Sarah Sanders announced. "The President will remain in the United States to oversee the American response to Syria and to monitor developments around the world". "Get ready Russian Federation, because they will be coming, nice, new and 'smart!'" said Trump in a tweet on Wednesday morning.

The White House said no "final decision" has been made concerning its response to the alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria, reported Xinhua news agency.

On Monday, the Republican leader promised that the "heinous attack on innocent Syrians with banned chemical weapons" would be "met forcefully".

But the president had been telling confidants for weeks that he was not eager to make the three-day trip, according to two people who have discussed it with him in recent weeks but were not authorized to disclose the private conversations.

Russian Federation warns USA against Syria strike
Both Russia and Syria are now inviting inspectors from the global chemical weapons watchdog into the country to investigate. Russia's claim came hours after the Pentagon denied Syrian media reports that the USA conducted the airstrikes in Syria.

In London, British Prime Minister Theresa May said late on April 11 that all indications pointed to Syrian government responsibility for "a shocking and barbaric act" that could not go unchallenged.

But that is just one crisis now on the president's Resolute Desk.

His anger had not abated by early Tuesday.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents executed search warrants and seized financial documents and other records possibly related to Trump's contacts with his personal attorney who paid $130,000 in hush money to adult film actress Stormy Daniels shortly before the 2016 presidential election. "Attorney-client privilege is dead!"

He also speculated about the position of his Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy Rod Rosenstein.

Senior members of the US Congress have repeatedly urged Trump not to fire the special counsel.

"If the president is thinking of using this raid to fire Special Counsel Mueller or otherwise interfere with the chain of command in the Russian Federation probe, we Democrats have one simple message for him: don't", top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer said.

"The raid is seismic", Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal, a former federal prosecutor, told MSNBC, adding such searches by the Federal Bureau of Investigation indicate the possibility a crime was committed.

He was incensed this week by the FBI's raid of his personal attorney's office and hotel room. Last month, Trump said U.S. troops would "be coming out of Syria like very soon". Trump's homeland security adviser, Thomas Bossert, exited Tuesday.

Bolton, a seasoned bureaucratic operator, has been expected to put his stamp on the National Security Council staff. NSC spokesman Michael Anton resigned over the weekend, with two people familiar with the situation saying Anton resigned after learning he would be fired.
