Trump gives a quick statement about the latest military air strike that took out a top general for Iran. Trump says, "We took action last night to stop a war, we did not take action to start a war.”
Trump says the target was acting wrongly over the last four years, as well.
Without divulging details about what led to the early morning airstrike that killed Soleimani and nine others, the president said the United States "caught" the general "in the act and terminated him.” “Soleimani made the death of innocent people his sick passion,” Trump added, saying that "what the U.S. did yesterday should have been done long ago." Later Friday night, during an event with evangelical supporters, Trump addressed the airstrike, saying, "Qassem Soleimani has been killed and his bloody rampage is now forever gone.”
Tensions are now rising between United States and Iran, despite the number of people celebrating the act as a victory.
