World Russia Syria eastern Ghouta In a moment of anger over the use of chemical weapons against civilians in Syria, President Donald Trump did something he has repeatedly avoided throughout his time in office: got tough with Russian President Vladimir Putin.During a cabinet meeting held Monday, Trump launched the conversation by condemning what he called a “heinous attack on innocent Syrians with banned chemical weapons.” On Saturday evening, civilians in the Damascus suburb of Eastern Ghouta were killed in what many believe was a chemical weapons attack. The Syrian government and Moscow have both denied that they were involved in Saturday’s attack, blaming Islamist rebels instead. Trump, however, appeared unconvinced and pledged that in the next 24 to 48 hours his administration would decide how to respond to the attack that killed at least 60 people.Recommended Slideshows51In Pictures: The 50 Most Powerful Military Forces in the World44In … [Read more...] about Trump Says Putin Will Pay a Price for Chemical Attack in Syria, Vows to Respond to Atrocities by End of Day

President Donald Trump says the new addition to his legal team, Rudy Giuliani, will "get his facts straight." Trump, speaking to reporters Friday, suggested that Giuliani had misspoken about reimbursements to the president's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, for payments to porn star Stormy Daniels as part of a nondisclosure agreement. Trump said Giuliani "is a great guy but he just started a day ago." He said the former New York City mayor is "learning the subject matter." The president added that "virtually everything" reported about the payments were wrong. He did not elaborate. Giuliani said this week that Trump knew about Cohen's 2016 payment to porn actress Stormy Daniels and that Trump had repaid Cohen through monthly retainers. Trump had previously denied knowing about the payments. The surprise revelation of the president's payment clashed with his past statements, and has created new legal headaches and stunned many in the West Wing. White House aides were blindsided when … [Read more...] about Trump Says Giuliani ‘Will Get His Facts Straight’
