Trump vows swift action on 'atrocious' Syria chemical attack

Syria has called the allegations of a chemical attack in Douma a 'fabrication' - as has its main ally, Russia.

    The US president says he will make a decision soon on how to respond to a suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria.

    Donald Trump insists all options are on the table, including military action.

    Dozens of people were killed in Douma on Saturday, but Syria's main ally, Russia, has denied it ever happened.

    Al Jazeera's Kimberly Halkett reports from the White House.
