President Trump is canceling this weekend’s South American trip to Peru and Colombia because of the crisis over Syria, the White House said Tuesday.
Vice President Pence will take Trump’s place on the trip, which includes the Summit of Americas meeting in Lima, Peru.
“The President will remain in the United States to oversee the American response to Syria and to monitor developments around the world,” said White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.
Trump is considering a military response at Syria over a recent chemical weapons attack on anti-government rebels.
After Lima, Pence will visit Bogota, Colombia, to meet with government officials there.
