Trump was reacting to a warning from Russian Federation that any USA missiles fired at Syria over the deadly assault on a rebel enclave would be shot down and the launch sites targeted.

As chemical weapons experts arrived in Syria to investigate a suspected poison gas attack by government forces, worldwide diplomacy was in high gear to head off an escalation, though accusations flew thick and fast between Washington and its allies, and Russia, Assad's main backer. Both the Russian military and the Syrian government said they would facilitate the mission and ensure the inspectors' security.

"The goal of our actions tonight is to establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread and use of chemical weapons", Trump said.

Syria has continued to deny any chemical weapons were used. When he announced his plan for the strikes against Syria on Friday night, he said Russian Federation "must decide if it will continue down this dark path or if it will join with civilised nations as a force for stability and peace".
