Trump rethinks Trans-Pacific Partnership: Biggest winners

WASHINGTON/TOKYO- US President Donald Trump said the United States would only join the Trans Pacific Partnership, a multinational trade deal his administration walked away from past year, if it offered "substantially better" terms than those provided under previous negotiations.

President Trump announced a combined operation with Britain and France on Saturday to target Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's chemical weapons capabilities after a poison gas attack killed at least 60 people in Douma last week. "The Assad regime must not be allowed to commit such crimes with impunity", Mr Turnbull said in a statement on Saturday.

Trump says that last Saturday, Syrian President Bashar Assad deployed chemical weapons in what was a "significant escalation in a pattern of chemical weapons use by that very bad regime".

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Joseph Dunford said the three target areas included a scientific research center in Damascus, a chemical weapons storage facility west of Homs and a nearby storage facility with chemical weapons equipment.

"Russia must decide if it will continue down this dark path or if it will join with civilized nations as a force for stability and peace", he said. Hopefully, someday we'll get along with Russian Federation and maybe even Iran.

Shortly after being sworn in as president, Trump pulled the U.S. out of the 12-nation pact and the agreement could not enter into force. Just weeks ago, Trump said he wanted to end USA involvement in Syria and bring American troops home to focus on the homeland.

On Thursday, after the president made clear he was nearing a decision, Ryan batted down suggestions that Trump should ask Congress to approve a military force authorization, or AUMF. One airbase the USA fired at was back in use the next day. While all three Western countries believed chemical weapons had been used, global inspectors had not reached the site of the attack and it was unclear how much evidence their governments could put forward.

US President Donald Trump's reconsideration of an agreement he once denounced as a "rape of our country" caught even his closest advisers by surprise.

For Chiellini , the decision [to award a penalty] was laughable but the centre-back lauded his team's effort. If Buffon does not play in European competition again, UEFA can not sanction him for his remarks.

Barack Obama was the first United States President to use Twitter, or any social media site, to connect with the world - particularly the citizens and residents of the great United States of America.

The allied operation comes a year after the US missile strike that Trump said was meant to deter Assad from further use of chemical weapons.

Immediately after the attack, Syrian state TV, broadcasting live from the landmark Omayyad Square, showed crowds of civilians mixing with men in uniform, including vehicles with flags.

Marking one of the amazingly few times Mr.Trump has told the truth, he made good on the trade threats he made as a candidate and, knowing the risks of alienating major agricultural trade partners, farmers overwhelmingly supported a candidate they knew could further worsen an already hard agriculture economy.

A total of 88 members of Congress from both parties wrote Trump on Friday to urge him to consult with legislators before taking action. Russian Federation threatened to shoot down any US missiles launched at targets in Syria.

The bill that Trump signed Friday is named for her. At a meeting on Thursday to discuss the plight of American farmers, Trump said he was thinking again.
