Trump Cancels South America Trip To Clean Up Obama's Syria Mess

President Donald Trump has canceled his scheduled trip to multiple South American countries originally planned for this week, the White House said Tuesday.

In a statement, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the president "will not attend the 8th Summit of the Americas in Lima, Peru or travel to Bogota, Colombia as originally scheduled."

Vice President Mike Pence will make the trip in Trump's stead, Sanders said.

The White House said Trump will stay in the U.S. in order to "oversee the American response to Syria and to monitor developments around the world."
