Trump to Skip Summit of Americas in Peru: White House

President Trump canceling South America trip to focus on Syria

The earlier US announcement that President Donald Trump will not attend the 8th Summit of the Americas to be held this week here in the Peruvian capital reflects a "low priority" for Latin America on Washington's agenda, said Peruvian analysts.

A source at the White House confirmed to El Tiempo that Pence would not travel to Bogota after his appearance at the summit in Peru.

"The president will remain in the United States to oversee the American response to Syria and to monitor developments around the world", Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.

"The presence of President Trump would have been beneficial and important", Mr. Vizcarra said at Lima's presidential Palace of Pizarro.

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

Often overshadowed by their classmates, a group of Black Parkland, Florida school shooting survivors will rally with the Rev. But some conservative figures, like Allman, have gone further than that - attacking the kids in vicious and personal ways.

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

Trump's cancellation of his trip to the Summit could be a relief for some countries in the Latin American region.

Richard Feinberg of the University of California, San Diego, who led Latin America policy in the Clinton White House, called the change in plans a "shocking abandonment of US leadership in our own hemisphere" and said it "leaves a leadership vacuum that others will rush to fill".

Trump's top economic advisor Larry Kudlow had been speaking to conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt about his plans to travel with Mr. Trump to the summit, seemingly unaware of the new plans. The regional survey Latinobarometro said Latin Americans last year viewed Trump more unfavorably than they did George W. Bush or Cuba's Fidel Castro in the year of his death. President Trump vowed Monday that the United States would be "making some major decisions in the next 24 to 48 hours".

The wide-ranging Russian investigation being led by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III has also intensified in recent weeks, as have converging legal battles pertaining to Trump and his associates.

Iran's Rouhani warns Trump would regret withdrawing from nuclear deal
Iran's state news agency IRNA reported that a total of 83 nuclear technology-related achievements were unveiled during the event. President Donald Trump carries out his threat to exit a nuclear deal with Tehran .

Options include the sort of largely symbolic airstrike Trump ordered a year ago in response to a similar chemical attack blamed on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, or a wider and riskier assault.

Jose Cardenas, who served in the National Security Council under George W. Bush and regularly speaks with Trump administration officials.

The White House did not respond to requests for a response. Mr. Macri insisted that Argentina would not recognize the results of Venezuela's much-criticized presidential elections set for May 20 "however much Mr".

Trump has reversed some of President Barack Obama's diplomatic and economic outreach to Cuba, including pulling many US diplomats out of the country following unexplained health attacks on Americans previous year. Maduro's main rivals are barred from running against him as he seeks re-election despite a crushing economic crisis and foreign sanctions.
