Donald Trump cancels trip to Summit of Americas in Peru

Trump to skip South America summit to “oversee the American response to Syria”

In a statement, Pence communications director Jared Agren said: "The vice-president is honored to represent the United States at the eighth Summit of the Americas at President Trump's request".

'President Trump will not attend the 8th Summit of the Americas in Lima, Peru, nor will he travel to Bogota, Colombia, as he was originally scheduled, ' White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement on Tuesday. He would not describe the USA response or say when it would come. Trump values his European allies and has often said so. "Russia could stop this senseless slaughter if it wanted, but it stands with the Assad regime and supports without any hesitation".

The change comes amid a tumultuous week for the White House - an Federal Bureau of Investigation raid Monday targeted the Manhattan office and hotel room of Michael Cohen, the president's personal lawyer.

Speaking to reporters at the White House, he said: "We're making decisions as to what we do with respect to the disgusting attack that was made near Damascus".

Manager Alex Ferguson provided an ever so succinct summary of the game afterwards: "Football, eh?" We were just 2-0 down. Combined with Burnley's late 2-1 win over Watford, and the Foxes sit six points back of seventh place.

"I'm going to bet you he holds his regular schedule today", Kudlow said.

The White House had already scaled back the trip in recent weeks, and one planned meeting with Peru's president was canceled after he resigned amid corruption allegations. Pence will travel to the summit in his place, but will not go to Colombia. "Nearly all matters that have linked Trump to Latin America are matters of confrontation, whether in trade or immigration", said Kahhat. Chinese president Xi Jinping has made economic inroads in South America for years; the US may try to reverse those gains and shore up economic solidarity against China. The U.S.is working to coordinate Latin American countries on a pressure campaign against Venezuela's government.

"He looks forward to promoting policy that will lead to an even stronger US economy and working with our close allies in Latin America to collectively hold undemocratic actors in the region accountable for their actions", said Jarrod Agen, Pence's deputy chief of staff and communications director.

On Monday, the President promised a quick response to Syria and met his military leaders to consider options.
