Donald Trump held a news conference with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg where he referred the 19th President of Syria, Bashar al-Assad as “a butcher." This came as no surprise since the US administration accuses Assad of attacking his own people with Chemical weapons. Following an attack of chemical weapons in the Idlib province that killed 80 people (including children) and left dozens injured, the US military fired 59 Tomahawk missiles at an airfield in Syria on April 7th.

US President on attacking the Syrian airfield

Trump did not regret the missile attack carried out by his administration as he said in an interview that "I have absolutely no doubt we did the right thing."

He tweeted from his account:

In the beginning of April this year, some of the top advisers for Donald Trump said that the US President was deeply stirred after watching videos of kids suffering from the aftermath of the brutal chemical strikes carried out by the Syrian regime.

It would not be wrong to say that this compelled President Trump to take action against the Syrian government.

The same feelings of President Trump could be sensed on April 12th, 2017 when he stood at the news conference with the NATO chief and said:

"Young children dying, babies dying, fathers holding children in their arms that were dead, dead children," he further added. "There can't be a worse sight, and it shouldn't be allowed."

While talking to Fox News in an interview, he said that regardless of the missile strikes carried out by his administration, the US will not be going to war with Syria.

“Are we going to get involved in Syria? No.” Trump openly told the host during the interview.

US President on Russia supporting Syrian regime

The 45th President has frequently accused the current Russian government of backing Bashar al-Assad’s regime and claims that Russia is almost equally responsible for all the atrocities taking place in Syria. During the press conference with the head of NATO, Donald Trump said:

"We may be at an all-time low in terms of our relationship with Russia." It would be a fantastic thing if the two countries improved their relationship, however, he warned that "it may be just the opposite."

Russia's support of Syria was also visible on the international forum of the UN Security council recently when Syria denied that it was carrying out chemical attacks and Russia ended up vetoing, for the eighth time, in support of Syria -- a motion that was brought forward in the UNSC demanding that the Syrian regime comply with the investigators.
