President Trump added that “It’s a great honor to have the Emir of Qatar with us. He’s a friend of mine — knew him long before I entered the world of politics. He’s a great gentleman.”

Al-Thani told reporters the region could not tolerate “a war criminal” like Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and he said the region cannot accept people who support terrorism. The two leaders spoke as the U.S. prepares to respond to a suspected chemical weapons attack in Douma, Syria.
