Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, director of the joint staff, said in a briefing at the Pentagon Saturday morning that the joint forces targeted three locations with 105 weapons. They said a chemical weapons research facility, a sarin gas warehouse and another chemical weapons storage facility were the targets for the airstrikes.
The army said almost 110 missiles hit targets in the capital Damascus and other areas, and air defence systems brought majority down.
Trump's tweet Saturday morning recalled former President George W. Bush's infamous declaration, standing aboard an aircraft carrier in 2003, that the US had accomplished its mission in Iraq. He tweeted, "Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military".
As pictures of the bombing raids aftermath continue to emerge, Mr Trump said he "could not have had a better result".
"The goal of our actions tonight is to establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread and use of chemical weapons", Trump said.
The strikes were conducted the same day a team of investigators from the UN Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) is scheduled to visit Douma to determine if the alleged chemical attack took place.
Both the regime of Syria's Bashar al-Assad and its ally Russian Federation have denied all responsibility for the Douma attack, and Moscow slammed the "aggressive actions" of the Western coalition, but it has not yet responded militarily.
Huge blasts were reported around Damascus early on Saturday, moments after the US, France, and Britain announced they were striking Syria's chemical weapons capabilities. Russia's ambassador to the United States said Moscow had warned that "such actions will not be left without consequences".

Friday's joint airstrikes hit three targets associated with Syrian President Bashar Assad's chemical weapon program, including a scientific research center in Damascus, chemical weapon storage facilities and a command post.
"The alleged use of chemical weapons, if true, is deplorable".
Dunford said that manned US aircraft were used in the military operation and that the strike was planned to minimize the risk of casualties among Russia's military forces in Syria. Some reports also claim that Washington was confident that sarin gas was used during the April 7 attack as well, though US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis said there were no conclusive reports of Assad using sarin gas this time.
The Kremlin has repeatedly dismissed the allegations against Syria and said its own experts found no "trace of chlorine or any other chemical substance used against civilians". But the U.S. that carried out its second strike on Syria in a year refuses to buy that argument.
