"A perfectly executed strike last night", Mr. Trump said.
A total of 22 missiles from France, the United Kingdom and the United States hit this site, including eight British Storm Shadow missiles and nine American Tomahawk missiles. Could not have had a better result.
That same day, Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler (NY) revisited Trump's old tweets, in which he chastised former President Barack Obama for ordering airstrikes on Syria without congressional approval, after Trump did the exact same thing.
White says the strikes "were very successful".
On April 9, officers from the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Opposing Parties in Syria visited Douma but found no trace of chemical weapons use there. "Mission Accomplished!" he declared.
Dozens chanted and held signs to demonstrate their disappointment in President Trump's decision to use military force in Syria without first letting global organizations confirm the chemical attacks.
Russian Federation and its ally Syria called the attack fabricated and said no evidence of chemical weapons use exists in Douma. "No local resident confirmed the chemical attack".
The Pentagon also says none of the missiles filed by the US and its allies was deflected by Syrian air defenses, rebutting claims by the Russian and Syrian governments.
The allied attack set off a fierce global debate about whether it was justified.
Addressing the council, Guterres said: "At this critical juncture, I call on all member states to act consistently with the charter of the United Nations and with global law, including the norms against chemical weapons".

De Bruyne has been the standout player in the incredible Manchester City side that have stormed the Premier League this season. Sane, 22, has been nominated in both Player and Young Player of the Year categories as has Kane, a victor in 2015.
Meanwhile, European Council President Donald Tusk has said the European Union stood by the US, France and Britain over their air strikes.
On Capitol Hill in Washington, however, the strikes ignited a fresh debate over the scope of the war on terror and just how far the Trump Administration can commit USA forces to an undeclared war in the Middle East.
The joint operation was in response to a suspected chemical attack in the city of Douma last week. "Public estimates are as high as 200", she said.
The White House says the leaders agreed the airstrikes in Syria "were successful and necessary to deter" the future use of chemical weapons. It blamed Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants for mustard gas use.
"Initial assessments are that this target was destroyed", he said.
"I have repeatedly expressed my deep disappointment that the Security Council failed to agree on a dedicated mechanism for effective accountability for the use of chemical weapons in Syria", he added.
The Him Shinshar chemical weapons bunker facility, located more than 4 miles (7 km) from the storage facility, was struck by seven Scout missiles.
The Syrian government has to declare the entire stockpile of chemical weapons in order to resume the political dialogue in Geneva, US State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert said.
"This operation does not represent a change in U.S. policy, nor an attempt to depose the Syrian regime".
"The United States estimates that Assad has used chemical weapons in the Syrian war at least 50 times".
"We have to be very conscious of the fact that we can not allow even the smallest use of chemical weapons".
