The US, France and the United Kingdom responded to the suspected attack by launching missiles on Saturday that they said targeted Syrian chemical weapons production facilities.

Following Haley's reviews, some from the administration implied the sanctions could possibly be rolled out Monday.

The White House is officially calling Haley's statement on sanctions a mistake, however although others said it was odd that Haley would make such a mistake given that how "disciplined" she is in ensuring that her statements are in line with Trump's thinking.

Haley also said the USA won't be pulling troops out of Syria right away, saying their involvement there "is not done".

The decision on new sanctions against Russian Federation, related to the Syrian crisis, is still pending, declared the press Secretary of the White house Sarah Sanders.

Former FBI Director James Comey, who was sacked by Trump, also compared the U.S. leader to a mafia boss and said he was "morally unfit" to be president, stoking controversies. They said Haley is one of the most disciplined and cautious members of the Cabinet, especially when it comes to her public appearances.

The WH is reporting that Trump would not approve any additional sanctions without another triggering event by Russian Federation, and characterized Haley's comments as a misstatement.

The official said Trump had expressed concern that if the administration did not proceed cautiously, tensions between Washington and Moscow - already at their worst since the Cold War - could escalate dangerously, the official said.

In early March, following a relatively small scale chemical weapons attack in Syria, Trump was upset there was not a ready set of options, so then-national security adviser H.R. McMaster prepared a series of measures that were not enacted.

The strikes followed the Assad regime allegedly carrying out a chemical attack in Douma, Syria which killed 78 civilians and injured hundreds of others.

Trump tweeted "Mission Accomplished" on Saturday after U.S., French and British warplanes and ships launched more than 100 missiles almost unopposed by Syrian air defenses.

"We had up until this point had six different resolutions that would have dealt with investigative mechanisms for chemical weapons, and Russian Federation had vetoed all of them", Haley told CBS on Sunday.

"The president is going to continue to be tough on [Russia]", she said.

"Secondly, we want to make sure that they understand that ISIS [ISIS] has to be defeated completely and wholly in a way that we know that we have stabilized the region".

In the absence of a permanent secretary of state, Haley has been the face of American diplomacy, playing an especially prominent role over the past week as the Trump administration responded to the attack in Syria.
