Trump says Russian Federation ties worse than Cold War, blames Mueller

Trump says Russian Federation ties worse than Cold War, blames Mueller”

Mocking Russia's pledge to shoot down missiles fired at Syria, he said that Russia had to "get ready" because "they will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!'" Naturally, this was the exact opposite of what Trump used to say during President Obama's tenure.

The U.S. military was ready to provide military options, if appropriate, he added.

The Russian messenger was actually describing remarks crafted from Russian head of staff, General Valery Gerasimov, whom around March cautioned that Moscow would certainly obliterate rockets shot in the direction of Syria and in turn target their release sites in the event that the assaults endangered members of the Russian military. The Russian stock market crashed as a result.

Some lawmakers criticized Trump's apparent telegraphing by tweet of a missile strike in Syria. Get ready Russian Federation, because they will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!' Trump tweeted. Any U.S. strike would probably involve the Navy, given the risk to aircraft from Russian and Syrian air defenses.

"We are aware that the United States carrier battle group led by the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman and escorting ships are heading to the Persian Gulf and are scheduled to arrive in about early May", he said. A USA navy guided-missile destroyer, the USS Donald Cook, is in the Mediterranean.

The Syrian foreign ministry accused the United States, which has supported some rebel groups in Syria's conflict, of using "fabrications and lies" as an excuse to hit its territory.

Russian emissary to Lebanon states his nation is going to react in case United States with allies attack Syria, amidst increasing tensions.

The WHO said 43 people had died in Saturday's attack on Douma from "symptoms consistent with exposure to highly toxic chemicals", and more than 500 had been treated.

In response, a former British commander of the Joint Forces Command, General Sir Richard Barrons, warned in an interview with BBC Radio 4's 'Today" program, "I hope the ambassador has chosen his words very carefully because what he's actually saying is, if the US and allies decide to strike against Syrian chemical weapons and delivery aircraft, not only are they going to try and shoot down the missiles in flight - which they are capable of doing but won't be with total success - but by saying the words, "launch platforms' he's saying they are going to try and sink ships, sink submarines and shoot aircraft out of the sky".

Russia's diplomat to Lebanon Alexander Zasypkin pointed out that Russian Federation will react to pretty much any U.S. missiles launched in neighbouring Syria by shooting all of them down, as well as targeting their launch locations.

Moscow's threat to down US missiles came from its ambassador to Lebanon, Alexander Zasypkin, who said it was based on previous statements by President Vladimir Putin and the Russian armed forces chief of staff.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin talked over the phone on Wednesday amid rift between the two countries over Syria.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova hit Trump in a Facebook post: "Smart missiles should fly toward terrorists, not the legal government that has been fighting global terrorism for several years on its territory".

"The Prime Minister reiterated that Israel will not allow Iran to establish a military presence in Syria", the Israeli Prime Minister's Office said in a statement, without elaborating.
