In the meeting with the Russians, Assad said that the strikes had demonstrated that Russian weapons were superior to US ones, according to the lawmakers.
My fellow Americans, a short time ago I ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapons capabilities of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.
"I think (the relationship) has been changing over time", she said. "I think everyone knows that we sent a strong message, and our hope is that they listen to it".
Washington and its allies launched a massive missile strike targeting the Syrian military and civilian facilities in retaliation for the alleged "chemical attack" that was reported by rebel-linked groups.
Haley said the sanctions, to be announced Monday by Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, would target companies that supplied Damascus with equipment and other material related to chemical weapons. "We know that it is now up to Bashar al-Assad on whether he's going to use chemical weapons again". Chlorine, in contrast, has been used more widely in Syria's conflict without past U.S. reprisals and is far easier to find and weaponize, experts say.
It suggested believers pray thus: "Lord, we pray for peace and your protection over the men, women and children of Syria".
Trump also announced sanctions against Russian Federation in August, accusing Putin's government of tampering with the 2016 USA presidential election. "This was not muscle flexing".
On the "Fox News Sunday" program, Haley again slammed Russian Federation, accusing it of enabling the Syrian government to use chemical weapons without worrying about blowback at the United Nations.
Donald Trump has been condemned by Russian Federation and Syria for the strikes, which have been dubbed by both county's leaders as "an act of aggression". Iran's influence has been growing after defeat of terror groups in Iraq and Syria where Iranian military advisors have played important role.
American troops are still fighting to stabilize Iraq.
The Pentagon repeated Saturday that the President has the authority under the Constitution to defend U.S. interests, but what happens next is up to the Assad regime and Russian Federation. "But our efforts have been repeatedly thwarted" by Syria and Russian Federation, she said. He took to Twitter again on Sunday to address the backlash but remained unapologetic.
"We of course know our work in Syria is not done", U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on "Fox News Sunday".

"We convinced him it was necessary to stay", the French leader added. "I can assure you that the president is watching".
Sen. Tim Kaine, also appearing on "Face the Nation", slammed the air strikes as illegal and reckless without approval from Congress. "President Trump is not a king". Syrians living in Vermont are also following the situation closely.
"I say to the foreign secretary, I say to the prime minister, where is the legal basis for this?"
"It's reckless because as you pointed out there isn't a strategy", Kaine added. Assad has not taken part in the summit since 2011, when the 22-member organization suspended his membership.
A day after the bombardment, Assad appeared briefly on state TV and told a group of visiting Russian lawmakers that the USA and its allies were spreading "lies and misinformation" against Syria.
Reacting to the attacks on Syria, Iran's Supreme Leader ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has condemned the joint airstrikes by the US, UK and France on Syria as "Crime", describing the leaders of three western countries as "criminals". But now that the strikes have happened, nearly all are urging the President to make his future plans in Syria clear and come to Congress for approval. Putin said such actions will inevitably lead to "chaos" in global relations, according to a readout released by the Kremlin.
