USA: 'There will be a price to pay' — WH on Syria chemical attack

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White House Press Secretary: «The President is confident, he has been briefed by his national security team and being kept up to date constantly and regularly on the intelligence around that, and I can't get any further beyond that at this point.» Journalist: «Do you have proof at this point that it was in fact a chemical weapons attack?» Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White... Еще House Press Secretary: «Once again, I can't get anything beyond the comments that we have already made, but we are confident in those comments.» *MULTIPLE SHOTS AT SOURCE* White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders reiterated US President Trump's words that «there will be a price to pay» for the alleged chemical weapons attack on the Syrian city of Douma and that «Russia and Iran also bear responsibility», at a press conference in Washington D.C. on Monday. «These actions are consistent with Assad's established pattern of chemical weapons use. His forces are already responsible for previous chemical weapons attacks and other actions targeting civilians», Sanders said. She rebutted journalists' speculations whether Trump's words on the US' withdrawal from Syria may have prompted Assad to order the recent attack: «We have made very clear who we think is responsible for these attacks and to try to conflate that and make this on any part in blame on this president is absolutely ridiculous.» Sanders also remarked that Trump and his administration have been «very tough» on Russia, but at the same time, «The President still feels that if we can have a good relationship with Russia at some point that's a good thing for the world, but at the same time this President is going to be tough on Russia until we see some changes in their behaviour.»
