Hezbollah to Trump: Your tweets do not scare us


BEIRUT (AP) — Hezbollah's leader is telling President Donald Trump: "Your tweets do not scare us."

Speaking at an election campaign rally in Beirut today, Hassan Nasrallah describes Trump's threats to send missiles into Syria as "Hollywood."

"All these tweets and threats ... do not scare Syria, Iran, Russia nor any of the resistance movements in the region," he said.

Nasrallah said there is no proof and no logic to accusations the Syrian government used chemical weapons in Douma.

"Someone who is cornered might use chemicals, but why would a victor need to?" added.

Speaking via satellite link to supporters in Beirut, Nasrallah also called the alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma a "theater."
