Press Secretary Sarah Sanders wouldn't budge on Wednesday to reveal which way the White House is leaning in its response in Syria, repeating that "all options are on the table."

Why it matters: President Trump alluded to a different idea on Wednesday morning, when he tweeted that Russia needs to "get ready" for "missiles fired at Syria." This further clouds expectations for what the U.S. will do next. On Monday, Trump said that there would be a decision made within 48 hours, and that doesn't seem to have happened. Sanders said the president "has not laid out a timetable."
