Missiles 'will be coming,' says Trump, but can Russian Federation shoot them down?

"Final decisions haven't been made", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said.

"If there are problems, they must be solved at the negotiating table", she said.

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria", Trump wrote on Twitter. "We have the technology and the desire" to take part in projects that Russian Federation has with U.S., European Union and Japanese partners to explore the Moon and Mars, he said. Get ready Russian Federation, because they will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!' Trump tweeted.

The threats come in the aftermath of an alleged chemical attack in the Syrian city of Douma.

Meanwhile the Russian Government have said they will act if the USA military decides to launch missiles into Syria as they will have no option but to retaliate and carryout President Putin's orders and shoot down the inbound United States missiles. The Assad government has denied that it has used chemical weapons. An worldwide team of inspectors was said on Tuesday to be readying for an official probe into the widely reported incident.

Some lawmakers criticized Trump's apparent telegraphing by tweet of a missile strike in Syria.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova hit Trump in a Facebook post: "Smart missiles should fly toward terrorists, not the legal government that has been fighting worldwide terrorism for several years on its territory". The latest Trump tweets illustrate the threat of wider war that could break out in Syria as the US and its allies could come into direct confrontation with Russian Federation, a nuclear-armed power. He suggested, "stop the arms race?"

A Cossack society in St. Petersburg, Russia has voted to recall the honorary membership given to US President Donald Trump and plans to burn him in effigy in protest over "insults to the nation".

"Much of the bad blood with Russia is caused by the Fake & Corrupt Russia Investigation", tweeted Trump, who has been accused of being overly indulgent to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
