Trump cancels trip to the Summit of the Americas and Colombia

Trump Cancels South America Trip to Weigh Action on Syria Donald Trump cancels South America trip

US President Donald Trump has chose to skip his plans to travel to South America to oversee the US' response to a chemical weapons attack in Syria, the White House announced on Tuesday.

In a statement, Pence communications director Jared Agren said: "The vice-president is honored to represent the United States at the eighth Summit of the Americas at President Trump's request". The president's daughter, Ivanka, will also attend to defend "women's place in the economy of the region", according to a high-ranking official.

US President Donald Trump is now cancelling his first official visit to #South America in order to focus all of his attention on the rising problems with Syria and its crooked leader Bashar al-Assad.


"Trump's dropping out of the Lima summit is an appalling demonstration of disrespect for Latin America", Richard E. Feinberg, a senior Latin America fellow at the Brookings Institution, told The New York Times.

The latest development came after an apparent chemical weapons attack on civilians in Syria, killing dozens of women and children.

The Syrian government is blamed for a chemical weapons attack on its own people that the president called an "attrocity". It's also a missed opportunity for Trump to build bridges in the region; he's widely unpopular with Latin Americans thanks, in part, to his statements on immigration. Finally, leaders across the world are taking action on the Assad regime and we'll see this happening over the course of the next couple of weeks. That news caused Trump to lash out at Mueller to reporters late Monday, describing the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid as a criminal act and an "attack on our country". Trump values his European allies and has often said so. He can work on his relationship with South America later, when he can stomach meeting its leaders.
