  • U.S. Vice President Mike Pence waves as he arrives at Jorge Chavez international airport in Lima Peru Friday

Trump wasn't happy with Pence's appointment of Jon Lerner because he believed he was part of the "Never Trump" movement when working on negative ads against him for "Club for Growth" during the GOP primaries, sources told Axios.

By Sunday night, the vice president's office had issued a second statement that Lerner had withdrawn.

President Trump's former golf caddy - a man with zero political experience - has, against all odds, risen to a top position in the West Wing.

US Vice President Mike Pence has threatened that Washington is set to respond to possible retaliatory moves against its missile attacks on Syria, by Damascus or its allies, specifically Russian Federation and Iran.

A Pence spokeswoman, Alyssa Farah, says Lerner informed Pence about Sunday his choice was approved by Pence and he was withdrawing.

'Vice President Pence holds Jon Lerner in the highest regard and expressed his deep gratitude for Jon's willingness to consider joining our team'.

Earlier in the day, Pentagon officials suggested they had proof that the Assad regime was behind the attack, but said they couldn't elaborate on the information because it was classified.Further Pence said that "minimum" chlorine was used in the attack along with serin.


— Pence defended the president while building support among US allies for the joint strikes with Britain and France.

The unified front was presented during a highly anticipated meeting between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence on the sidelines of the Summit of the Americas in Peru's capital.

But Haley and Pence, whose foreign policy philosophy fits squarely within establishment Republican thinking, are not always aligned with Trump.

Interested in Trump Administration?

Pence has been without a national security adviser for months after Andrea Thompson resigned and was nominated by Trump to a senior post in the State Department.

Central Intelligence Agency chief Mike Pompeo, who was nominated to be secretary of state last month, reportedly shares Bolton's hawkish approach.
