No "final decision" yet on Syria response, White House says

6 reasons why Donald Trump had a worse day than you today

On Tuesday, Trump lashed out at reports that the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid centering on his longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, on Monday, telling reporters at the White House that it was a "disgraceful situation" and "an attack on our country" and "what we all stand for".

Vice President Mike Pence will travel to Peru in Trump's stead for the Summit of the Americas, press secretary Sarah Sanders announced.

The lawyers repeated those arguments after Monday's raids targeting Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, but have made little or no progress persuading the president, the officials said.

The head of the United Nations and a former USA president warned against allowing the war in Syria to spiral out of control, hours after President Donald Trump told Syrian ally Russian Federation to "get ready" for retaliatory missile strikes.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a war monitor, said pro-government forces were emptying main airports and military air bases throughout Syria.

The president has been consumed by foreign policy concerns, including possible U.S. military action in response to the Syrian government's recent alleged chemical weapons attack, an ongoing trade war with China, and the special counsel's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible Russian collusion with the Trump campaign.

And privately, Trump said he didn't want to be away from the White House amid developments in the China trade dispute and in the Mueller investigation.

The World Health Organization said that 43 people who died in the attack on Douma suffered "symptoms consistent with exposure to highly toxic chemicals" and more than 500 in all had been treated.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, for his half, tried to douse speculation Trump could fireside Rosenstein or Mueller, saying: "I've no trigger to think about that that's going to happen".

His anger had not abated by early Tuesday.

People close to Trump say he's at a "breaking point" and may soon fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the head of the Russian Federation probe.

That prompted Democratic members of Congress to push for Mueller to be protected.

"The investigation is critical to the health of our democracy, and must be allowed to continue".

The raid on Cohen's offices come amid allegations he paid porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 shortly before the election to keep a tryst with Trump quiet.

"This is about getting Donald Trump at all costs even if it means stretching the boundaries of exceptions to attorney-client privilege", said former Trump campaign adviser Michael Caputo.
