US President Donald Trump said in an interview with Fox News television on Tuesday (June 12) that the missile strike against Assad regime coincided with his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping at his residence in Florida.
The president said he told his Chinese counterpart: “Mr. President, we have launched 58 rockets at specific locations in Syria. He asked me through an interpreter to repeat what I said. I said that every rocket fired hit the target from a distance of seven hundred miles.”
“But we did, because Assad used chemical gases against children … We had to do that,” Trump said, adding that if President Barack Obama had passed the red line, In the Middle East is somewhat different. ”
“I told him he could leave the meeting or we could become friends, he did not leave and understand everything,” the US president said.
Trump declarations came in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity after Singapore summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
