WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives said on Tuesday that the American people are not supportive of President Barack Obama's position on Syria and he must make a stronger case.

"The American people have not been supportive. They have not made the sale to the American people. That's why I think tonight is so important," John Boehner told a news conference, referring to Obama's planned speech to the U.S. nation on Tuesday night on Syria.

Boehner, a Republican, also said he was skeptical of a Russian plan to bring Syria's chemical weapons under international control "because of the actors involved."
