Spat over Haley 'confusion' raises questions about Trump foreign policy
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley pushed back on the suggestion that she was "confused" about possible new sanctions for Russian military support to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Bashar al-Assad told a group of Russian lawmakers that the airstrikes on his country were accompanied by a campaign of "lies and misinformation" against Syria, Russia in the U.N. Security Council.
Syria responded to the U.S.-led attack, saying the country's defenses knocked many of the missiles out of the sky.
The airstrikes, targeting and destroying three chemical weapons facilities, were ordered in response to another suspected chemical attack in Syria.
Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad has denied using chemical agents on his own people.
The Syrian president sat down for a 2011 interview with ABC's Barbara Walters to discuss how he treats protesters in his country.
"Today Britain, France and the U.S. have taken a stand against brutality in Syria," Trump said.
President Trump announced the attack, in cooperation with France and the U.K., on multiple targets in Syria.
ABC News' David Muir reports from Lebanon on new signs in the region that air strikes could happen soon.
While investigators are working to confirm the Assad regime used chemicals to attack civilians, French President Emmanuel Macron says he has definitive proof.
