Russia Challenges U.S. After Trump’s Latest Move.

Russia officially challenged “President” Trump after he set out his strategy on Syria during an interview in which he said a chemical weapons attack had transformed his views on President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

Trump, who has previously argued against removing Assad from power, said the attack on a rebel-held town in Syria’s Idlib province was a “heinous” act that “crossed a lot of lines for me.”
Trump has not offered any details of how US strategy on Syria would change — but he did tell some members of Congress that he’s considering military action in Syria in retaliation for Tuesday’s chemical attack, a source familiar with the calls told CNN on Thursday.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters that “steps are underway” to organize an international effort to remove Assad. He called on Russia to “consider carefully” its continued support for the Syrian regime.
