President Trump decries chemical attack in Syria

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump says this week's chemical attack on Syrian civilians "cannot be tolerated."

Trump spoke at a White House news conference with Jordan's King Abdullah II., saying innocent people, including women small children "and even beautiful little babies" were killed.

Trump is calling the attack "an affront to humanity" and says, "These heinous actions by the Assad regime cannot be tolerated."

A suspected chemical attack in a town in Syria's rebel-held northern Idlib province killed dozens of people on Tuesday in one of the worst attacks in the country's six-year civil war.

The Trump administration has blamed the attack on the government of President Bashar Assad.
