Trump's new national security adviser, John Bolton, advocated that Trump stay in Washington in the aftermath of the attack, said one of the officials. The list of South and Central Americas leaders slated to attend who Trump has panned includes the leaders of Mexico, Honduras and Cuba.

US President Donald Trump has made a decision to skip his plans to travel to South America to oversee the US' response to a chemical weapons attack in Syria, the White House announced on Tuesday.

Pence's deputy chief of staff, Jarrod Agen, said in a statement that Pence is "honored" to attend the summit, adding that a year ago he "traveled to the region to meet with the presidents of Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Panama to increase the pressure against the Maduro regime and negotiate better trade deals that benefit American workers". And it will be met forcefully. "I don't like talking about timing", he said.

Also, the Syrian government has been accused of being behind the "chemical attack" on the rebel-held town of Douma in the Eastern Ghouta region that was launched last Saturday.
