President Trump reportedly tried to block Vice President Pence's national security adviser pick because he previously worked on anti-Trump ads for a conservative group.

"We believe that it has significantly eroded and crippled the ability of the regime to produce chemicals", Pence further claimed despite the fact that the previous USA administration was heavily involved in the process of Syria's dismantling of its entire chemical weapons arsenal back in 2014 in the presence of worldwide inspectors.

US Vice President Mike Pence has threatened that Washington is set to respond to possible retaliatory moves against its missile attacks on Syria, by Damascus or its allies, specifically Russian Federation and Iran.

US prepared to respond to possible retaliation by Syria, Russia or Iran - Pence claims

Pence made the remarks in a speech at the Summit of the Americas in Peru on Saturday.

"Today, we call upon every nation in this hemisphere of freedom to support this military action taken by the United States and our allies, and to support it publicly".

Pence said the US, Britain and France "delivered a clear and unambiguous message to the Syrian regime".

TPP members opposed to adjustments to include US
Tighter trade links between the USA and other Asian nations could give Trump a better hand in the brewing trade fight with China. Still, negotiations with a group of longtime trading partners could hold appeal at a time of increasing tensions with China.

Seeking rapprochement with Mexico, which has been at odds with Trump over the border wall and immigration, Pence said the topic of funding for Trump's long-promised border wall did not come up in his meeting with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto.

While the crisis in Syria was front and centre, Trudeau and Pence also expressed optimism about the state of NAFTA negotiations, the results of which will have dramatic ramifications for the US and Canada.

The Nafta trade agreement could be renegotiated in the next few weeks, US Vice President Mike Pence and Canada's Prime Minister said yesterday in Peru, avoiding new political opposition that could emerge during Congressional and Mexican elections later this year. Pence, meanwhile, tends to be more scripted in his exchanges and frequently glanced down at highlighted index cards as he spoke to Latin American leaders here.

Trump Reportedly Now Fears Michael Cohen Corruption Investigation More Than Mueller Probe
Cohen, it seems, spent this glorious spring afternoon on a Manhattan sidewalk puffing a cigar with a bunch of his bros. Municipal records show Cohen and his wife have 32 taxi medallions in New York City and at least 22 in Chicago.

But that was before the U.S., Britain and France launched the joint airstrikes Friday in retaliation for a suspected chemical-weapons attack on April 7 that killed 43 people and injured hundreds more in a rebel-held enclave near Damascus.

The meeting with Pence was announced on Friday and follows Trump's push to deploy National Guard troops to the U.S. -Mexico border to fight illegal immigration and drug smuggling.

Also Friday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov responded to an global chemical weapons watchdog's report on the poisoning. Meanwhile, Russia's ambassador has accused the British authorities of destroying evidence in the Salisbury nerve agent attack.
