WHITE HOUSE CLAIMS “PREPARATIONS” UNDER WAY FOR REPEAT EVENT
by Sharon Rondeau
(Jun. 26, 2017) — A White House statement issued on Twitter and announced on the Fox News Channel on Monday night revealed that the Trump administration has reason to believe that Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad is planning a chemical-weapons attack on his own people.
On April 6, Trump ordered the U.S. military to drop scores of Tomahawk missiles on a Syrian air base after reports surfaced that Assad had carried out a chemical attack on dozens of Syrian civilians on April 4.
The White House statement warns Assad that he will pay “a heavy price” should he release chemical weapons in a “mass murder attack” as that which occurred nearly three months ago.
