Donald Trump cancels first Latin America visit to focus on Syria crisis

U.S. President Donald Trump

The whole incident was captured in a harrowing digital video that's been circulating around the internet in the past couple of days.

The amount of parties involved in the Syrian conflict, both on the opposition and governmental sides, make retaliation against a chemical attack incredibly complicated.

His travel plans changed after a Saturday night attack on the Syrian town of Douma which killed at least 60 people and injured more than 1,000 others. On the whole, the Assad's attacks on the Eastern Ghouta area of #Syria going back to February are reported to left a total of more than 1,700 civilians dead. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders stated that, "The president will remain in the United States to oversee the American response to Syria and to monitor developments around the world", Sanders also stated that Vice President Pence would be traveling in the president's stead". In the meantime, the president will also have to answer to the countries slighted by his absence at the Latin American conference, and be prepared for whatever comes from the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid. Instead, Vice President Mike Pence will lead the us delegation to the Summit of the Americas that kicks off Friday in Lima, Peru.

United States President Donald Trump has called off his planned trip this weekend to South America, announced the White House.

"I'm not very surprised (with Trump's absence) because the USA government really has no clear agenda for the region", he said. Finally, leaders across the world are taking action on the Assad regime and we'll see this happening over the course of the next couple of weeks.

Shortly before the announcement, Larry Kudlow, the president's new director of the National Economic Council, said Trump was able to "compartmentalize" and that he wouldn't be distracted by the drama surrounding Cohen.

Mr Trump's message of America First, however, was expected to be far less embraced by the attendees. "Nearly all matters that have linked Trump to Latin America are matters of confrontation, whether in trade or immigration", said Kahhat. The U.S.is working to coordinate Latin American countries on a pressure campaign against Venezuela's government.
