‘Get ready’: Trump says missiles going to Syria after Russia vows to shoot them down

President Trump warned Russia Wednesday that missiles are heading to Syria after the country vowed to shoot them all down.

“Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and ‘smart!’ You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!” Mr. Trump tweeted.

His tweet was in response to the Russian Ambassador to Lebanon Alexander Zasypkin who said late Tuesday that any U.S. missiles in Syria will be shot down, but added that negotiations were still an option.
