White House press secretary Sarah Sanders will join ABC's "This Week." 

Both will likely face questions on Trump's decision to authorize strikes without congressional approval and next steps. The administration has emphasized that the mission to cripple chemical weapons in Syria was a success, but that the U.S. is ready to maintain pressure in order to prevent future use. Retaliation by Syria or its allies over the strike may be yet to come.
