We have the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world, by far! I will be making a statement tomorrow morning.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 8, 2020
The missive was the president’s first tweet in several hours, after spending much of Tuesday retweeting hawkish lawmakers pushing for a harder line on Iran following an American assassination strike on a top Iranian general, Qassem Soleimani, last week.Also on rt.com Iranian strike was ‘proportionate’ self-defense, no need for escalation or war – FM Zarif
Earlier on Tuesday evening, CNN had reported that Trump was set to make a national address, but the White House press office shot down the report as "irresponsible."
This is not true - was never true - & no one even attempted to confirm with the press office before tweeting.
