WASHINGTON (AP) – President Donald Trump says an attack on Syria could take place “very soon or not so soon at all!”
The president made the statement in a tweet Thursday morning. Trump on Wednesday warned Russia to “get ready” for a missile attack on its ally Syria, suggesting imminent retaliation for last weekend’s suspected chemical weapons attack.
Never said when an attack on Syria would take place. Could be very soon or not so soon at all! In any event, the United States, under my Administration, has done a great job of ridding the region of ISIS. Where is our “Thank you America?”

But his tweet Thursday said he “Never said when an attack on Syria would take place.”
