'Confusion Internally': Trump Walks Back Nikki Haley Announcement on Russia Sanctions

New Western air strikes in Syria would provoke

If the USA sanctions are enacted, they will be the second such batch in just over a year against Syria's weapons of mass destruction programme. And it shouldn't just be us doing it.

"We are evaluating, but nothing to announce right now", she said.

Trump reportedly lashed out at aides after the United States expelled 60 Russian diplomats last month, and he is also said to have told aides not to speak publicly about tough measures against Russia that he approves because he does not want to upset Putin. And so I think everyone is going to feel it at this point.

Haley also said the USA won't be pulling troops out of Syria right away, saying their involvement there "is not done".

"We're evaluating, but nothing to announce right now", press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday afternoon.

Does anyone know what's going on in this administration? No?

One White House official explained to The Washington Post Monday morning that "there had been confusion internally about what the plan was". The U.S. ambassador in Moscow, John Huntsman, said in a video, "Before we took action, the United States communicated with" Russia to "reduce the danger of any Russian or civilian casualties".

Russian Federation had earlier warned that it would equip Syria with better anti-air missile defense systems to take down any missile attacks in the future.

Increasing media reports suggest that Trump administration is planning this move to punish Russian Federation for enabling the Syrian government's use of chemical weapons in its civil war.

Pentagon top brass told CBN News three specific targets were hit: A scientific research center north of Damascus, which was used for development, production, and testing of chemical weapons, was destroyed along with two other storage facilities. In a USA military action a year ago in response to a sarin gas attack, missiles took out almost 20 percent of the Syrian air force, the Pentagon said.

That did not mean military strikes would continue.

Washington has said it had proof that Syrian forces conducted a deadly chemical weapons attack on April 7, although a visit by chemical weapons inspectors to the suspected attack site was delayed on Monday.

Haley appeared on "Fox News Sunday" and CBS' "Face the Nation".
