With Syria in focus, Trump cancels trip to Latin America

Trump suspends his attendance at the Summit of the Americas at the imminent attack on Syria

Trump has vowed to make a swift decision to respond to what he called "atrocities".

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. The White House says canceling the trip allows Trump to focus on the latest crisis in Syria. Trump found himself consumed by the Cohen raids Monday, fuming in private as well as going on a tirade about the "witch hunt" in front of reporters.

Trump had been slated to give a policy speech in Peru that a senior administration official told reporters last week would advance Trump's priorities for US national security and "peace through strength". It will be interesting to see how Vice President Pence manages the situation at the summit, and how the other countries react to him.

And in 2011, former President Barack Obama went ahead with a trip to Brazil while American forces were striking Libya. "Nearly all matters that have linked Trump to Latin America are matters of confrontation, whether in trade or immigration", said Kahhat.

CNBC also spoke to Sergio Montenegro, who works in Lima, and he compared Trump with some populist leaders who came to power in Latin America.

Additional reporting via Newsy affiliate CNN. Souring relations with Mexico and the ongoing trade negotiations over the North American Free Trade Agreement were expected to hang over the meeting. Saturday's large gathering of leaders in Lima would have been the only opportunity for a chance meeting between Castro and Trump before the Castro era ends in Cuba. Anyway, it seems like America will be making huge strides forwards in their handling of the Syria crisis, even if it means Trump missing an important summit in South America.
