Trump Suggests He Is Making The Phrase 'Mission Accomplished' Great Again

President Trump arrives to announce military strikes on Syria as new national security adviser John Bolton follows behind at the White House

"Mission Accomplished!" he wrote of the US, UK and French strikes against targets in Syria over the suspected use of chemical weapons.

President Trump doubled down on his use of the term 'Mission Accomplished, ' which he included in a tweet about Syria Saturday morning. "It is such a great Military term, it should be brought back", he wrote.

"I think it's very hard to say "mission accomplished" if the mission is to deter the use of chemical weapons", he said.

"I think it is impossible to say at this point that the mission has been accomplished", he said on CNN's "State of the Union".

Later Sunday, Trump sent a letter to congressional leaders informing them in writing of his decision to order the strike. Although more determined than Obama, Trump has acted just twice against the use of chemical weapons during his presidency; a time in which dozens of chemical attacks have been alleged.

The Pentagon said Syria fired 40 surface-to-air missiles, but most were launched after the damage was done.

Russian Federation has army forces, together with air defenses, in a number of areas of Syria to assist President Bashar Assad in his lengthy battle in opposition to anti-government rebels. "We hope that will be the case, but we did a strike a year ago for that same goal and it was deemed a success, but the chemical weapons have continued to be used". The U.N. Security Council rejected a Russian resolution calling for condemnation of the "aggression" by the three Western allies. "There is no proposal on the table at the moment for further attacks because so far thank heavens the Assad regime [has] not been so foolish as to launch another chemical weapons attack". The U.S. says it suspects that sarin gas also was used.

Dana W. White, the chief Pentagon spokeswoman, said that to her knowledge no one in the Defense Department communicated with Moscow in advance, other than the acknowledged use of a military-to-military hotline that has routinely helped minimize the risk of U.S.

"Good souls won't be humiliated", Assad tweeted, whereas a whole lot of Syrians gathered in Damascus, the capital, the place they flashed victory indicators and waved flags in scenes of defiance after the early morning barrage.

Though officers mentioned the singular goal was Assad's chemical weapons functionality, his air drive, together with helicopters he allegedly has used to drop chemical weapons on civilians, had been spared.

Both Russia and Iran condemned the airstrikes, with Russian military officials claiming Saturday that the Syrian military had shot down more than 70 missiles.

The U.S. -led operation won broad Western support. The NATO alliance gave its full backing; NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said the attack was about ensuring that chemical weapons can not be used with impunity.

Assad's presidential Twitter account Saturday appeared to show him unfazed by the military strikes.

In his televised address from the White House on Friday, Trump said the US was prepared to keep up the economic, diplomatic and military pressure on Assad until he ends a pattern of killing his own people with internationally banned chemical weapons. The truth is, Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Workers, mentioned no extra assaults had been deliberate.

"We of course know our work in Syria is not done", U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on "Fox News Sunday".

White stood by Trump's assessment of "mission accomplished".
