Nikki Haley Roasts Russian Counterpart At Emergency UN Meeting

Haley went on to say that USA intelligence believes Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has used chemical weapons at least 50 times during the seven-year Syrian civil war, and that Russian Federation can not credibly distance itself from Assad's crimes.

"We were not looking for war".

On Friday, a USA -led coalition launched airstrikes against Syria in response to Assad using chemical weapons against his own people.

She said that it is "entirely up to Assad" whether the missile attack on Syria was a one-time response to the suspected chemical attack by Syrian forces a week ago that killed more than 40 people or part of a continuing allied military effort. "We can't control what a country does to its people".

"If you look at what Russian Federation is doing, they continue to be involved with all the wrong actors, whether their involvement in Ukraine, whether you look at how they are supporting Venezuela, whether you look in Syria and their way of propping up Assad and working with Iran, that continues to be a problem", Haley said. We went after their massive research facility which was the heart of their chemical weapons program and we went after their production facility.

Her statement came before the Security Council voted against a Russian resolution that would have condemned the missile strikes, with eight nations rejecting the resolution, four abstaining, and three countries-Bolivia, China, and Russia-voting in favor of it. "If Assad doesn't get it, it's gonna hurt".

"There [are] multiple issues we have with Russian Federation right now", Haley pointed out, adding, "Right now they don't have very good friends, and right now the friends that they do have are causing them harm".

Russia's ambassador, Vasily A. Nebenzia, added that the airstrikes, carried out by the U.S.as well as the United Kingdom and France, amounted to "aggression against a sovereign state" without allowing the U.N.to investigate the suspected poison gas attack. That was not something that in our American values we would want to do.

"It's impossible to say at this point the mission has been accomplished", King, who caucuses with Democrats, said on CNN's "State of the Union".

"When I talk to the refugees, what I talk to them about [is] they want to go home".

Previously, former President Barack Obama had increased the number of refugee admissions from 70,000 to 110,000; however, the Trump administration brought the number down to its lowest in US history to 45,000 for the fiscal year of 2018. "But this is a political process that needs to happen".
