BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:50 P.M.) – U.S. President Donald Trump issued a threatening tweet on Wednesday that warned Russia of an imminent missile attack against the Syrian government by his forces.
Trump tweeted “Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and ‘smart!’ You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!”
Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a calm response to Trump, stating that he hopes “common sense” will prevail in the modern world.
“The state of world affairs invokes nothing but concerns, the situation in the world is becoming more chaotic,” Putin said on Wednesday during a ceremony to welcome new ambassadors to Russia.
“Nevertheless, we still hope that common sense will eventually prevail and international relations will enter a constructive course, the entire world system will become more stable and predictable,” he added.
