Donald Trump cancels first Latin America visit to focus on Syria crisis

Donald Trump cancels first trip to Latin America 'to deal with Syria crisis'

US President Donald Trump will not attend the Summit of the Americas in Peru this week, the White House said on Tuesday, citing a need to remain in the country to monitor the US response to a suspected chemical attack in Syria. In that time, however, he has undertaken more distant trips to Europe, Asia and the Middle East on several occassions.

According to the reports, Trump met with the military officials in the White House on Monday evening to deliberate over the administration's response to an alleged chemical weapons attack carried out by Syrian President Bashar Assad's government against its own people.

Peru's global relations expert Miguel Rodriguez Mackay said Trump, who was expected to make his first visit to the region as US president, has once again made his "contempt" for Latin America clear.

Trump is also annoyed that the FBI investigators have raided the office and hotel room of his personal lawyer, which the President said was "disgraceful" of them, although they were just doing their jobs and they do have cause to suspect this lawyer of various wrongdoings.

Several nations, including the United States attended an emergency session of the U.N. Security Council during which U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said that Russian Federation was "complicit" in the attack.

Speaking to reporters at the White House, he said: "We're making decisions as to what we do with respect to the terrible attack that was made near Damascus". Trump oversaw that response from his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida.

Since Trump took power in January 2017, Vidarte said, "the topic that has dominated ties with Latin America has been the search for measures that will benefit his country more". "When I will not say because I don't like talking about timing". Pence will travel to the summit in his place, but will not go to Colombia.

Trump had planned to use the summit to seek consensus on how to handle the crisis in Venezuela, and press for better trade deals with countries in the region.

White House officials said last week that Trump was not expected to meet with Cuban leader Raúl Castro, who is attending his last such gathering before a scheduled retirement later this month.

"U.S. interests are not in Latin America, but in the Middle East".
