Speaking during a Cabinet meeting, Trump condemned the "heinous attack" Saturday that killed at least 40 people, including children.
"It was an atrocious attack".
Peskov suggested that the attack could have been staged by rebels to pin the blame on Damascus, something that Russian Federation has recently warned could happen.
"But we can't let atrocities like we all witnessed. we can't let that happen in our world. especially when we're able to because of the power of the United States, the power of our country, we're able to stop it".
"We must not overlook Russian Federation and Iran's roles in enabling the Assad regime's murderous destruction", she continued. Everybody is going to pay a price, he will everybody will.
The White House later qualified his remarks to say there was no timetable for withdrawal from Syria.
Earlier Monday, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis took aim at Russian Federation for what he suggested was its failure to ensure the elimination of Syria's chemical weapons arsenal.
President Donald Trump has condemned the "heinous" suspected poison gas attack in Syria and said he'll make a decision on the USA response within 24 to 48 hours. But if Putin indeed wanted to deal with Trump, why abort all such prospects with a poison gas murder of a has-been KGB agent in Britain, America's foremost ally? Washington denied this, and France, which in February had said it would strike in the event of a chemical weapons attack on civilians by Syrian government forces, said its forces were not involved.
Washington s main European allies stood by reports blaming Assad.
President Trump, who is weighing his options after reports of a horrific chemical weapons attack in Syria over the weekend, vowed to make a decision on a course of action in 24 to 48 hours.
They were supposed to discuss a USA -drafted resolution on an global investigative mechanism for chemical weapons use in Syria.
Meza-Cuadra said members of the Security Council on Monday agreed on the need for an urgent and impartial investigation conducted by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). They include sea-launched cruise missiles aboard ships within range of Syria.
"Either way, the United States will respond", she warned.
U.S. envoy to the UN Nikki Haley on Monday told the UN Security Council that "the Russian regime, whose hands are all covered in the blood of Syrian children, can not be ashamed by pictures of its victims", referring to Sunday's chemical attack on the town of Douma near Damascus, where regime forces killed an estimated 200 and injured more than 1,000, including many children.
The UN Security Council met on Monday to discuss the latest security developments in Syria, in particular the alleged chemical attack in Douma and the airstrikes that followed. Gen. Eitan Ben Eliyahu said the alleged use of chemical weapons "could not have gone without a response".
The guided missile destroyer is armed with Tomahawk cruise missiles, the weapon of choice in a U.S. attack one year ago on an airfield in Syria following an alleged sarin gas attack on civilians.
A Lebanese politician with close links to the Syrian government confirmed that precautionary measures were being taken throughout Syria.
Trump said the U.S. is still working to determine who is directly responsible for the attack, which was widely publicized in recent days after graphic on the ground footage of victims was shown around the world.
