"What I can tell you is the president has made it very clear that when it comes to weapons of mass destruction, we have no tolerance for it", Haley said.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Mnuchin "will be announcing those on Monday if he hasn't already, and they will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons use". "It is a record that has led to the trashing of all global standards against the use of chemical weapons".

Much like USA statements, Britain's foreign secretary Boris Johnson said there are no plans to launch additional military strikes against Syria, but that his country and its allies will consider further action if Assad uses chemical weapons against his people in the future.

The Trump administration also pushed back on comments made Sunday by French President Emmanuel Macron, who in an interview on French TV noted that President Donald Trump days earlier expressed his eagerness to withdraw USA troops from Syria, and "we convinced him to remain".

Trump's decision to order airstrikes against Syria was a focus of the Sunday morning talk shows, with opponents questioning his tweet "Mission Accomplished!" and supporters defending the term's use.

"Instead we should be condemning the country that has unilaterally stopped the security council from upholding this principle", Haley said. "They want to go back to what they remember", she added.

"I don't say we've ever said it's OK", she said. The U.S. and its allies accused Assad's forces of using chemical weapons, a claim Syria and Russian Federation have rejected.

A year ago, the United States launched missiles on Syria in response to another chemical weapon attack, he noted.

"As a military spouse, I know that "mission accomplished" means you have one task now in front of you, and when it's completed, it is mission accomplished", Ms. Haley said. "We of course know that our work in Syria is not done". "We know that the United States has aircraft carriers, that they have satellites, that they have 'intelligent missiles, smart bombs, ' they have a huge arsenal of nuclear weapons".

Since 2011, the Syrian civil war has left almost 5.6 million people seeking refuge; Lebanon and other Middle Eastern countries have accommodated nearly 4.5 million Syrians while the United States has allowed only 44 refugees since October 2017. Russian Federation sent chemical defense specialists to Douma, finding no evidence that chemical weapons had been used.

"It was atrocious", Trump said of the attacks.
