‘So far, so good!’ Trump tweets of US military might, set to address Americans on Wednesday over Iranian strike

‘So far, so good!’ Trump tweets of US military might, set to address Americans on Wednesday over Iranian strike
US President Donald Trump has weighed in after a series of Iranian missile strikes on American bases in Iraq, noting that a damage and casualty assessment looks “good” so far.

“All is well! Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq. Assessment of casualties & damages taking place now,” Trump said, adding that he would make a statement to the nation on Wednesday morning.

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.

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."
