President Donald Trump, in a surprising reversal, told a gathering of farm state lawmakers and governors Thursday morning that he was directing his advisers to look into rejoining the multicountry trade deal known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a deal he pulled out of within days of assuming the presidency. "A combined operation with the armed forces of France and the United Kingdom is now under way".
US Defense Secretary James Mattis says air strikes on targets in Syria were a "one time shot" to send a strong message to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Macron said the attack was "limited to the Syrian regime's facilities enabling the production and employment of chemical weapons".
"TPP was killed because it failed America's workers and it should remain dead", AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka told Trump on Twitter. On Friday, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said analysis done by the U.S., U.K. and France proved the chemical attack.
"The objective of our actions tonight is to establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread and use of chemical weapons", he said.
Syria has denied using chemical weapons.
Dunford said there were no early reports of US losses, although there were some surface-to-air missiles shot by Syrian defense forces once the missile attack started.

His Australian counterpart, Steve Ciobo, said the U.S.is welcome to rejoin the agreement, but added: "Let's also be clear, I think there's very little appetite among the TPP 11 countries for there to be any meaningful renegotiation or indeed any substantial renegotiation of the TPP 11 at all". And Sang-mi, what do we know about the targets of the joint airstrikes?
The pact includes Mexico and Canada, which are in the process of renegotiating the terms of the North American Free Trade Agreement with the United States.
The approach, Biddle said, reflects Trump's roots as a real estate developer who made risky bets and went bankrupt several times on the way to making billions of dollars.
Japan Finance Minister Taro Aso also welcomed the US' decision to explore the possibility of rejoining the CPTPP. Now, they said, his orders were being carried out. In a statement Friday night, May called last weekend's chemical attack "pure horror".
After the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid and the Syria crisis, Trump abruptly cancelled his trip to South America on Tuesday. The ministry claimed that the Syrian government keeps a stockpile of chemical weapons precursors at the site, thus violating the Chemical Weapons Convention, of which it is a party.
