President Barack Obama on Friday declined twice to say whether he would take military action in Syria even if Congress rejects the resolution authorizing force.

While holding a press conference in St. Petersburg, Obama told CNN's Brianna Keiler that speculating on such a dielmma is premature at the moment because he's still trying to build support on Capitol Hill. 

"I think it would be a mistake for me to jump the gun and speculate because, right now, I'm working to get as much support as possible out of Congress," he said.
