"Use often!" he tweeted on Sunday.

She said Russian Federation needs to feel the consequences of protecting the Assad regime. "I think everyone knows that we sent a strong message".

Haley said that the United States would not pull its troops out of Syria until its goals were accomplished.

She said: "We can not stand by and let Russian Federation trash every worldwide norm and allow use of chemical weapons to go unanswered". Haley noted that Russian Federation has vetoed six resolutions in the U.N. Security Council regarding chemical weapons. Speaking from rebel-held northern Syria, Abdulrazek told The Associated Press there were perhaps 50 warehouses in Syria that stored chemical weapons before the program was dismantled in 2013.

US Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer warned of the risks of being drawn into "a greater and more involved war in Syria". "This was not muscle flexing".

Haley says the fact that Assad was making the use of chemical weapons "more normal and that Russian Federation was covering this up, all that has got to stop". "Our job was never to start a war".

Haley said President Donald Trump is prepared to strike Syria again if that happens, though she declined to say how the United States would respond to the use of conventional weapons.

That means an end to chemical weapons usage, the complete defeat of ISIS in Syria, and curbing Iranian influence in the area.

President Trump's use of the familiar phrase struck a chord with the American people, many of whom opposed military action against Syria.

Ms Haley said the United States and its allies had given diplomacy "chance after chance" but Russian Federation had continued to veto UN resolutions. "We'll be coming out of Syria very soon".

FILE - President Trump speaks in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House on, April 13, 2018, in Washington, about the United States' military response to Syria's April 7 chemical weapons attack. He said the US knew of no civilians killed by allied missiles. "I can assure you that the president is watching".

Sen. Tim Kaine, also appearing on "Face the Nation", slammed the air strikes as illegal and reckless without approval from Congress.

Kaine said the Syrian operations lack a clear strategy.

"It's illegal because he didn't come and ask permission", he said. "We need to defeat ISIS". Russian Federation and fellow pro-Syrian government ally Iran slammed the US-led airstrikes for taking place before the OPCW could conduct its probe. "It should be taken as part of a strategy".

A day after the bombardment, Assad appeared briefly on state TV and told a group of visiting Russian lawmakers that the USA and its allies were spreading "lies and misinformation" against Syria. "We can't control what a country does to its people".

He spoke to Mrs May and French President Emmanuel Macron by telephone on Saturday, agreeing the operation had been a success.

Putin called the military action a violation of the UN Charter and warned that if it continues, "it will inevitably entail chaos in worldwide relations", according to the statement.
