President Donald Trump has sent his strongest message to Russia, saying that the United States would be bombing the “gas killing animal” in Syria soon. Mr. Trump asked Russia to “get ready”.

Trump tweeted, “You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!”

President Trump was reacting to a Russian threat to shoot down any U.S. missiles in Syria: “Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and ‘smart!'”, he said.

In another tweet posted some 40 minutes after the first one, Trump called for a better relationship with Russia.

“Our relationship with Russia is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War,” Trump said. “There is no reason for this. Russia needs us to help with their economy, something that would be very easy to do, and we need all nations to work together. Stop the arms race?”

Trump commented hours after Russia’s ambassador to Lebanon warned that his country will shoot down any U.S. missiles fired at Syria in a retaliation strike on the Damascus regime over its alleged use of chemical weapons.

Russian Ambassador in Lebanon, Alexander Zasypkin,  in a television interview warned that Russia would “shoot down” any American missiles launched at Syria.

“If there is a strike by the Americans, then … the missiles will be downed and even the sources from which the missiles were fired,” Alexander Zasypkin told Hezbollah’s al-Manar TV Tuesday evening, speaking in Arabic, according to Reuters.

However, Zaspykin said that a clash “should be ruled out” and that Russia was “ready to hold negotiations.”

Russia’s vetoed a U.S. draft Security Council resolution calling for an independent investigation on Tuesday to establish beyond reasonable doubt that Syria used poison gas against civilians in Douma, a rebel-held suburb of Damascus, last week.

Syria has denied that it used poison gas.
