NATIONAL SECURITY/SYRIA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Donald Trump said Monday [4-9-18] he is likely to make a decision by the end of the day about the U.S. response to a suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria that killed dozens of civilians. In a cabinet meeting Monday, Mr. Trump denounced the weekend attack as ‘atrocious’ and said he and his national security team would make a quick decision on how to respond after meeting with his top advisers. The national security team is crafting military options for the president, who could authorize a strike on Syria…Mr. Trump is conferring with his cabinet, his top military leaders and officials from America’s closest allies as he considers the U.S. response. The United Nations Security Council was expected to hold an emergency meeting on Syria on Monday. The body wasn’t expected to take any decisive action because of resistance from Russia, which holds veto power on any Security Council actions.”
