Russian Federation on wrong side of Syria war: Mike Pence warns Putin

"Why would Mike do that", Trump reacted on Friday after learning that Vice President Pence planned on naming Jon Lerner, who is the deputy to United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, to lead his foreign policy team, Axios reported.

He said: 'Last night, the objective of the mission of that (our) commander in chief gave our military forces was completely accomplished, with swift professionalism'.

The US and its allies France and Britain launched air strikes, targeting sites associated with Syria's chemical weapons capabilities.

Responding to a question, Pence said that the U.S. message to Russian Federation is: "You're on the wrong side of history".

Trump often improvises his remarks and is known for bold declarations in person and on his Twitter account.

NDP leader Jagmeet Singh issued a statement Saturday saying "escalating violence through further military action is not the way to bring peace and stability to Syria and the surrounding region", and calling for more funds to investigate atrocities in Syria. Pence watched Trump's speech from his hotel suite, joined by aides.

He also stressed that the president made clear the U.S.is "prepared to sustain this effort".

In meeting after meeting, Pence offered a low-key, extended hand.

The comments restore some more optimism on Nafta after U.S. President Donald Trump earlier this week canceled a trip to Peru where Nafta could have been discussed further, and said he could let trade talks go on indefinitely because it would deter companies from investing there.

Pence said they simply had a difference of opinion and some issues were "set aside, for a later date".

Peru's President Martin Vizcarra, Colombia's President Juan Manuel Santos, Chile's President Sebastian Pinera, Mexico's President Enrique Pena Nieto and Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau meet during the VIII Summit of the Americas in Lima April 14, 2018.

A new North American free trade deal appeared closer to reality on Saturday, after U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence became the latest Trump administration official to suggest an agreement could be reached within a matter of weeks.
