As usual, Trump used Twitter to warn Russia that a missile attack on Syria is imminent after the Putin swore they would shoot down any rockets fired at the Assad regime in retaliation for last week’s poison gas bombing.
The president tweeted:
‘Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!’
If that weren’t enough, Trump sent a second Twitter blast, claiming America’s rapport with Russia has never been worse.
‘Our relationship with Russia is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War,’ he tweeted. ‘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?’
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov took aim at Trump’s online brushback pitch.
‘We do not participate in Twitter diplomacy,’ Peskov said. ‘We support serious approaches. We continue to believe that it is important not to take steps that could harm an already fragile situation.’
