US considering 8 possible targets in Syria

President Donald Trump met with his national security team on Thursday to discuss the situation in Syria, but has not made a final decision on whether or not to use military force, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said.

"We are continuing to assess intelligence and are engaged in conversations with our partners and allies," Sanders said in a release.

Trump will speak with French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May this evening, Sanders said.

But a source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told CNBC the U.S. was considering striking eight potential targets. Those targets include two Syrian airfields, a research center and a chemical weapons facility."We're looking very very seriously, very closely at that whole situation and we'll see what happens folks," Trump told reporters Thursday.
