WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump has been briefed on the situation in Syria, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a statement on Wednesday after a blast struck near a U.S.-led coalition patrol that a war monitor said killed 16 people.
“The president has been fully briefed and we will continue to monitor the ongoing situation in Syria,” Sanders said in a statement, referring questions to the U.S. Department of Defense.
