President Trump is not one to take threats lightly, especially from foreign leaders.

Recently, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer spoke of the situation in Syria, potentially warning of a new chemical attack by the Assad regime – and Trump issued his own warning against the Syrian leader as well.

However, while Trump was dealing with the critical situation in Syria, Russian President Vladimir Putin stepped in to issue his own warning on the matter.

Putin condemned” the United States for issuing their own warning against Syria, claiming it was “unacceptable”.

U.S. Intelligence gained word that another devastating chemical attack is being planned by the Syrian regime and President Trump warned Syrian President Bashar al-Assad not to make the same mistake again, where hundreds were killed, including women and children.

But Russia claims they received no word of a potential attack and believes the United States is just making empty threats against the Syrian leader, who Russia seems to be amicable with.

The Daily Caller reported:

Russia condemned the White House Tuesday for its “unacceptable” warning of a new potential chemical attack in Syria.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer announced Monday that U.S. intelligence indicates Syrian President Bashar al-Assad could be preparing a chemical attack that would “likely result in the mass murder of civilians, including innocent children.” If the Syrian regime goes ahead with the alleged plans, it would “pay a heavy price,” according to Spicer.

“Certainly, we consider such threats to the legitimate leadership of the Syrian Arab Republic unacceptable,” Peskov said in a statement, Reuters reports. “I am not aware of any information about a threat that chemical weapons can be used.”

Putin feels the United States should not act against the murderous Syrian regime without cause.

He also alleges the United States has essentially placed the blame of the April 4th attack on the Syrian regime without probable cause – which is a completely unfounded claim.

The Daily Caller reported:

Russia takes issue with the wording “another attack,” saying no independent investigation was conducted after the April 4 attack.

“That is why we do not think it is possible to lay the blame on the Syrian armed forces,” Peskov said, according to the Associated Press.

But President Trump changed course from Obama’s failing Syria policy since taking office in January.

Newsweek reported:

Since taking office in January, Trump has drastically changed his course on Syria. The Republican real estate mogul-turned-president was deeply critical of the way his predecessor, former President Barack Obama, handled the more than six-year conflict and initially pledged to cooperate with his Russian counterpart and then political ally, Vladimir Putin, in defeating the Islamic State militant group (ISIS). Trump even offered tacit support for Assad as recently as late March. While both the U.S. and Russia remain actively fighting ISIS, Trump has since placed his policies on a collision course with those of Russia in hopes of retaining as big a stake as possible in the war-torn country and of countering the growing influence of Iran, another ally of Assad.
