Keane on Trump-Putin Phone Call: Must Confront Russia on 'Horrific' Syria Attacks
President Donald Trump is set to speak by phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin today, the first discussion since the U.S. missile strike on a Syrian air base.
Moscow condemned the action, which came in response to a chemical weapons attack on Syrian civilians.
Fox News military analyst Gen. Jack Keane (Ret.) said this morning that he sees a face-to-face meeting between the two men coming, as relations are at "one of its all-time lows."
Keane said Trump - contrary to the Obama administration - appears willing to "confront" Putin, especially on the Kremlin's actions in Syria to support the Assad regime.
"What Putin is doing in Syria is horrific," said Keane, adding that strikes - including by Russian bombers - are continuing to target Syrian civilians.
Keane said Trump must press Putin in private on potential war crimes, including targeting civilians by striking hospitals.
He added that Russia has been "trampling" on U.S. interests and "enabling a war criminal in Syria" and must change its behavior if relations are going to improve.
