US President Donald Trump on Thursday said the US may not attack Syria soon, or at all.

"Never said when an attack on Syria would take place. Could be very soon or not so soon at all! In any event, the United States, under my Administration, has done a great job of ridding the region of ISIS. Where is our 'Thank you America?'" he tweeted.

On Wednesday, Trump admitted that the relationship between the US and Russia is at an all-time low, but called for cooperation instead of war.

"Our relationship with Russia is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War," a Wednesday tweet read.

"There is no reason for this. Russia needs us to help with their economy, something that would be very easy to do, and we need all nations to work together. Stop the arms race?"

Earlier on Wednesday, Trump mocked the Russian government's threat to shoot down any US missile launched at Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces.

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!' You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!" he tweeted.

After the tweet, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters no decision has been made yet on Syria.
