  • U.S. President Donald Trump

Vice President Mike Pence will travel in his place.

"At the president's request, the vice-president will travel in his stead".

The reason that Trump has decided to make this change and cancel his trip in favour of handling the U.S. response to the escalating crisis in Syria was that he needs "to monitor developments around the world" as other national leaders respond to the situation. Trump has chose to stay home to focus on issues related to an alleged use of chemical weapons recently in Syria.

"I'm not very surprised (with Trump's absence) because the USA government really has no clear agenda for the region", he said.

Aghdam's motives are now unknown, but videos online suggest she had a vendetta about the video sharing website YouTube . Police found her vehicle overnight at a Mountain View parking lot, about 30 miles southeast of YouTube headquarters.

Shortly before the announcement, Larry Kudlow, the president's new director of the National Economic Council, said Trump was able to "compartmentalize" and that he wouldn't be distracted by the drama surrounding Cohen. "Russia could stop this senseless slaughter if it wanted, but it stands with the Assad regime and supports without any hesitation".

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.

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

Since Trump took power in January 2017, Vidarte said, "the topic that has dominated ties with Latin America has been the search for measures that will benefit his country more". "When I will not say because I don't like talking about timing". He can work on his relationship with South America later, when he can stomach meeting its leaders. It will be interesting to see how Vice President Pence manages the situation at the summit, and how the other countries react to him.
