Washington- The White House said on Friday that strikes on a Syrian airfield authorized by United States President Donald Trump send a strong signal to the world, but declined to say whether Trump would approve additional strikes or actions against the Assad regime.

“I think that the president’s actions were very decisive last night and were clear about what he thinks needs to get done,” White House spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters at a briefing.

First and foremost, President Trump believes the Syrian regime, the Assad regime, should at the minimum agree to abide by the agreements they’ve made not to use chemical weapons, Spicer said.

“I think that should be a minimum standard set around the world,” Spicer added.
