Trump and Western allies are now discussing possible military action to punish Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for a suspected poison gas attack on Saturday on a rebel-held town that long had held out against government forces.
The commander-in-chief went on yet another Twitter tirade, declaring that "nice and new and "smart" missiles would soon be fired towards Syria as a response to the recent chemical-weapons attack.
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis warned such an attack carried the risk of spinning out of control, suggesting caution ahead of a decision on how to respond to an attack against civilians last weekend that US officials are increasingly certain involved the use of banned chemical weapons.
"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria", Trump tweeted.
Russian Federation later hit back, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov saying "we do not participate in Twitter diplomacy" in comments reported by the Interfax news agency.
Trump's Wednesday tweet announcing a forthcoming missile strike stood in contrast to his comments on the presidential campaign trail, when he often railed against former President Barack Obama for publicly signaling the country's military moves.
The perpetrators of Monday's attack on the airbase are also unknown, but the Russian Defense Ministry and Syria have accused Israel of carrying out the bombings.

Assad did not specify at the time which statesmen he referred to, though Sen.
The World Health Organization said on Wednesday that 43 people had died in Saturday's attack on Douma from "symptoms consistent with exposure to highly toxic chemicals", and more than 500 in all had been treated. "Final decisions haven't been made yet", press secretary Sarah Sanders said.
Russian Federation vetoed a US-drafted resolution to create a new inquiry to ascertain blame for such attacks.
"Any delay in visiting the location of the alleged incident could lead to another reckless move of Washington, which already fired missiles on Syria's Shayrat airbase in April 2017 in violation of the United Nations charter and worldwide law", the ministry said in a statement.
President Donald Trump on Thursday attempted to cloud the timing of potential airstrikes on Syria, a day after indicating they were imminent.
In response, Trump tweeted that America's relationship with Russian Federation "is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War".
