If the world played out on a Facebook feed, then Putin’s just changed his relationship status to “it’s complicated”. The question now is, what next?
Following a chemical weapons attack on Syrian civilians, Trump seemed to blame President Assad, saying that this was “crossing a line” - even though Assad has claimed a different version of events took place.
And though many have praised Trump for his quick and decisive action, the bombing has skewed the US President’s relationship with his Russian counterpart.
Speaking on US television, former Defence Secretary William Cohen said that the attack has “set the tone”, and that “life between us is going to be somewhat different."
This is compounded by the fact that Russia has now suspended a memorandum with the US which prevented any incidents and ensured all flight safety in Syria.
Putin has claimed that the US air strikes have broken international law and seriously damaged US-Russia relations.
The Russian Foreign Ministry released a statement reading: "The very presence of US troops and other countries on the territory of Syria, without the consent of the Government or the decision of the UN Security Council is a gross, obvious and unwarranted violation of international law.
"If before it was due to the task of combating terrorism, now there is a clear act of aggression against a sovereign Syria. US Actions taken today further destroy the Russian-American relations."
What’s more, Trump’s former favorite, and notorious ‘man of the people’, Nigel Farage has openly criticized the US President for the first time.
The Independent report Farage saying: “I am very surprised by this.
“I think a lot of Trump voters will be waking up this morning and scratching their heads and saying 'where will it all end?'
“As a firm Trump supporter, I say, yes, the pictures were horrible, but I'm surprised. Whatever Assad's sins, he is secular… Previous interventions in the Middle East have made things worse rather than better.”
