Washington — US President Donald Trump said Russian President Vladimir Putin is backing an “evil person” in Syria.

Trump told Fox Business Network that Putin’s support for Assad is “very bad for Russia.”Trump said it’s also “very bad for mankind.”
During the Fox Business interview with Maria Bartiromo on Tuesday, President Trump said he would not send ground troops into Syria despite Assad’s continued lethal bombardments.
“We’re not going into Syria, but when I see people using horrible, horrible chemical weapons which they agreed not to use under the Obama administration but they violated it,” Trump said.
“What I did should have been done by the Obama administration a long time before I did it, and you would have had a much better — I think Syria would be a lot better off right now than it has been,” he said.
Secretary of Defense Gen. James Mattis spoke earlier in the day at a Pentagon news conference about the Syrian chemical weapons attack last week, which killed 86, and the subsequent US response.
“We are obviously paying close to the environment in the wake of these strikes and remain appropriately postured to respond as necessarily,” he said. — Agencies
