Douma was the site of an apparent chemical attack by the Assad regime that left a reported 70 people dead and 500 more injured at the weekend. However, the exact number of people affected by the attack is unknown, with conflicting figures emerging from local reports. "Get ready Russian Federation, because they will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!' You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!"

Shortly after his tweeted warning to Russia, Mr. Trump took a more conciliatory tone in lamenting that the U.S. -Russia relationship "is worse now than it has ever been".

"The Prime Minister said it was a further example of the erosion of worldwide law in relation to the use of chemical weapons, which was deeply concerning to us all". The group will not assign blame for the attack if it's proven to have happened.

"But also it's a very, very delicate circumstance and we've got to make this judgment on a very careful, very deliberate, very well thought-through basis".
