Trade minister says 'no appetite' to renegotiate TPP to accommodate US

Trump US launched strikes on Syria

Smoke could be seen emerging from the northern and eastern edges of the capital, state media pictures showed.

The bombardment began at 4 a.m., with loud explosions thundering in Damascus and the sky turning orange as fires raged in the distance.

An AP reporter who went to the Center for Scientific Research on the northeastern edge of Damascus found the three-story building nearly completely destroyed and still smoking hours after it was hit.

A Politico report a year ago said the group hoped to spend $100 million on a pro-tax reform and pro-Trump message to elect Republicans in the upcoming midterm races. The Cabinet agreed on the need to "take action" to deter further chemical weapons use by Assad, but added that May would continue to consult with allies to coordinate an global response. Syria released video of the wreckage of a bombed-out research lab, but also of President Bashar al-Assad arriving at work as usual, with the caption "Morning of resilience".

Mattis said the assault was a "one-time shot", so long as Assad does not repeat his use of chemical weapons.

The paranoia over President Trump's tariff threats and the subsequent Chinese response has been well documented.

China's aggressive response to Trump's tariffs is aimed squarely at goods produced in the USA heartland, a region that helped send him to the White House.

He says increased engagement from countries including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Egypt can ensure that Iran does not profit from the defeat of the Islamic State group. He added, " We're "doing what is necessary to protect the American people".

"President Trump continues to conduct military operations without any comprehensive strategy or the necessary congressional authorization".

The one-off missile strike in April 2017 targeted the airfield from which the Syrian aircraft had launched their gas attack.

Friday's strikes appear to signal Trump's willingness to draw the United States more deeply into the Syrian conflict.

This is the second time Trump has retaliated against the Assad regime for using chemical weapons against civilians.

Speaking from the White House, Trump says, "To Iran and to Russian Federation, I ask: What kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women and children?" He called on Moscow to change course and join the West in seeking a more responsible regime in Damascus.

"The farmers and ranchers, they don't want welfare payments - they want to feed the world", Sasse said.

Britain's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said he welcomed the overnight strikes.

President Donald Trump says he is "prepared to sustain" strikes against Syria until the use of chemical agents stops. Just weeks ago, Trump said he wanted to end USA involvement in Syria and bring American troops home to focus on the homeland.

Trump's top national security aides in the days that followed talked him into a 4-6 month withdrawal plan.

Reaction split mostly along party lines to President Donald Trump's announcement that the US had launched a "precision strike" on Syria Friday night in response to an alleged reported chemical weapons attack last weekend. The tweets stopped and White House officials suggested to journalists that Trump might spend Friday night dining at his hotel in Washington.

Mr Trump said the military action was a combined operation with the armed forces of the United Kingdom and France.

In announcing the attack Trump said the USA was prepared "to sustain a response" until the Syrian regime ends its use of chemical weapons, but also said that America does not plan to stay in the country indefinitely. The participation of British and French forces enables Trump to assert a wider global commitment against the use of chemical weapons, but the multi-pronged attack carries the risk of Russian retaliation.

Haley blasted Russia for protecting Syria and said Moscow has emboldened the Syrian regime to continue its attacks, while the Russian ambassador to the United Nations said Washington had embarked on an "illegal military adventure".
