The White House on Tuesday abruptly announced the cancellation of US President Donald Trump's first trip to Latin America, scheduled for later this week, saying he wants to "oversee the American response to Syria".
Trump was to confer with French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May later in the day on the action the allies might take, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said.
Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Chief Judge Sidney Thomas asked at the hearing on Wednesday in San Francisco what the court should make of statements by Trump and his administration.
That's unambiguous. Yet, 10 hours later, there have been no strikes.
"The president has a lot of options at his disposal", Sanders said.

The tweet was markedly different from another message Trump issued via Twitter a day before in which he said Russian Federation should get ready for new and "smart" missiles that will be coming to Syria. She repeatedly said the president and his national security team continue to discuss "a number of options", reminding reporters "all of those options are still on the table". No final decision has been made. Whether he has gotten cold feet or simply made an announcement that wasn't ready for public consumption, it was a pretty stunning bit of backtracking from the White House on Wednesday afternoon.
Trump called it "an atrocious attack" and said he'll decide on a response soon.
"Look, you can not go out and say you are going to do something and not do it in this world. It is happening too much", said Corker, who once harshly criticized Trump but has since realigned with him. "We've waited too long already".
The President continued: "I (we) are doing things that nobody thought possible, despite the never ending and corrupt Russia Investigation, which takes tremendous time and focus".
Sanders told reporters the White House National Security team met Wednesday to discuss the USA response to Syria, and said the administration was "confident" in the "part of the process" where they were.
