During his presidential election campaign, Trump said he would like the USA to have better relations with Russian Federation.
The White House has previously said there is "no doubt" that the Assad regime carried out the attack, which killed at least 80 people, dozens of whom were children. "And so we are mindful of the seriousness of that particular interference in our elections, and I'm sure that Russian Federation is mindful of it as well", Tillerson said.
"That's a butcher. That's a butcher". "So I felt we had to do something about it". "I think he had a very successful meeting in Russia", Trump said.
Defense Secretary James Mattis was looking into it, he said.
Russian Federation blocked a Western effort at the UN Security Council on Wednesday to condemn last week's deadly gas attack in Syria and push Moscow's ally President Bashar al-Assad to cooperate with global inquiries into the incident.
"I won't hide the fact that we have a lot of questions, taking into account the extremely ambiguous and sometimes contradictory ideas which have been expressed in Washington across the whole spectrum of bilateral and multilateral affairs", Mr Lavrov said.
Russell Westbrook makes history in Denver
The Nuggets were 47% in field goals, but they struggled to knock down their 3-pointers only shooting 32%. Westbrook's triple-double chase has been one of the biggest story lines around the league this season.
Russian Federation has vetoed a United Nations Security Council resolution demanding that Assad's government cooperate with a probe into the deadly toxic gas attack.
"We have information that a similar provocation is being prepared... in other parts of Syria including in the southern Damascus suburbs where they are planning to again plant some substance and accuse the Syrian authorities of using chemical weapons", he said on Tuesday. But any such expectations have been dashed amid the war in Syria and ongoing USA investigations into Russia's alleged interference in America's U.S. presidential election.
Earlier Wednesday, Putin said that U.S. -Russia relations have gotten worse during Donald Trump's presidency.
Mr Tillerson said there was "a low level of trust" between both countries and such a relationship could not be allowed to continue between the world's foremost nuclear powers.
