Sen. Marco Rubio is suggesting a connection between the deadly chemical attack in Syria and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's recent remarks about the war-torn country's president, Bashar Assad.

Tillerson said the Syrian people will decide Assad's "longer-term status."

Rubio said Tillerson had essentially nodded "to the idea that Assad was going to get to stay in some capacity."

The Florida Republican said on radio show AM Tampa Bay: "I don't think that it's a coincidence that a few days later we see this."

He added: "Assad believes, and sadly he may be right, that he can gas his people with sarin, kill children, kill innocent civilians, people will complain, there'll be a meeting at the U.N. Security Council, and then life will go on and he'll stay in power."
