"The president will remain in the United States to oversee the American response to Syria and to monitor developments around the world", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

Following the raid on Trump's longtime lawyer, Michael Cohen, he channeled an unprecedented level of anger toward the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice officials, and is reportedly considering firing deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein.

She defended that Trump's tweet didn't give any plans away, adding that the president is still deciding on a timetable and repeating that he's leaving a number of options on the table.

"Rosenstein will be forced to choose between turning over material that they'll share with Trump to help him get his story straight or being fired for refusing to help them undermine the rule of law", said Walter Shaub, the former head of the White House's internal ethics watchdog.

Despite a few notable news sources alleging that the inner workings of the White House are in a state of disarray, Donald Trump is quick to denounce those claims. "I think there's a better way of doing this".

"The president has said, though, what he was going to do".

But Sanders did place an extra layer of blame on Russian Federation, saying the Kremlin had proven to be a "bad actor".

The Syrian government denied that it used chemical weapons, saying the alleged attack was staged by the terror group Jaish al-Islam to serve as pretext for possible external intervention in Syria.

"A TOTAL WITCH HUNT!" he blasted on Twitter amid news that Federal Bureau of Investigation agents had seized documents pertaining to Trump's dealings.

Early Wednesday, Trump tweeted: "Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired in Syria".

Rep. Adam Smith, the ranking Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee, said he sees no legal justification for a USA strike in Syria, absent explicit authorization by Congress.

The raid on Cohen's offices came amid allegations he paid porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 shortly before the election to keep a tryst with Trump quiet.

Rosenstein authored a memo criticizing James Comey's handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, and the note was later cited as justification for firing the FBI director. Now the White House says that may not be the case.

"We are continuing to assess intelligence and are engaged in conversations with our partners and allies".

Many legal scholars say the President can request from the Deputy Prosecutor General kind of Rosenstein to fire Muller, but he may refuse to comply with such an order.
