WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Ivanka Trump played role in a move to attack Syrian airfield in Homs province last week, Spicer said in a daily briefing.
"There is no question that Ivanka and others weighted in to him," Spicer stated when asked about Trump daughter's role taking the action on Syria.
Earlier in the day, the president's son Eric Trump confirmed that his sister Ivanka Trump, who has recently agreed to take an unpaid job as a White House adviser, influenced the order to launch missile strikes in Syria.
Damascus refuted the allegations of its involvement in the suspected chemical attack and condemned the US' strikes in the strongest terms. Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem said last Thursday that government forces had never and would never use chemical weapons against either civilians or terrorists.
