As President Trump considers airstrikes in Syria in response to a chemical attack that killed dozens of people, including women and children, Pope Francis has called for peace in the region.
President Trump has said that he will consider initiating military action against Syria within days. The president has sent several tweets hinting at iminent military action, but on Thursday he walked these back with a tweet saying he "never said" when the United States would be attacking.
"Could be very soon or not so soon at all," said Trump, noting that the United States has done a "great job" at removing Islamic State militants from the country.
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 "Thank you America?"- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 12, 2018
