With Syria in focus, Trump cancels trip to Latin America

Sanders said Trump has made a decision to stay in the United States to "oversee the American response to Syria and to monitor developments around the world".

The White House said Wednesday U.S. Vice President Mike Pence will attend the summit on behalf of Trump.

Pence has already visited Colombia as Vice President after he met with Santos last August following Trump's comments that there could be US military intervention in Venezuela. It's scheduled to begin on April 13.

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. He will also "oversee the American response to Syria" in the time that he had previously allocated to his first official visit to Latin America (seriously, it's taken him this long to get that together - and it's not even going forward anymore).

President plans to send Vice President Mike Pence to an upcoming summit in the president has chose to skip.

When speaking on Monday, Trump stated that "nothing is off the table", in dealing with Syria following the chemical attack.

The cancellation comes during an unusually chaotic period of Trump's presidency, including an Federal Bureau of Investigation raid Monday on the Manhattan office, home and hotel room of Michael Cohen, the president's longtime personal lawyer and fixer. "I don't like talking about timing", he said. It will be interesting to see how Vice President Pence manages the situation at the summit, and how the other countries react to him.

Latin America analysts said they had expected to hear a national security-focused exploration of Trump's focus on border security and reducing illegal and legal immigration to the United States. Maduro was disinvited from the gathering last month, an unusual diplomatic break among Latin American nations that USA analysts consider a positive sign.

The White House announced on Tuesday that Donald Trump will not travel to South America this week as planned. The list of South and Central Americas leaders slated to attend who Trump has panned includes the leaders of Mexico, Honduras and Cuba.
