“Iran is in retreat, it is good news for the whole world,” trump said, and added that the shelling on Tuesday no American or Iraqi was killed, and the destruction of the American bases in Iraq is minimal.
Iran avenged the death of major General Qassem Soleimani, who was killed by the American missile on the orders of the trump.
Trump has once again called Soleimani, the ideologist of foreign and military policy of Iran in the middle East — “the main terrorist in the world” and promised to continue the pressure on Tehran.
“While I am President, Iran will never be nuclear power” — began the trump press conference at which he came out surrounded by the whole of the top of the power unit and half an hour late.
What else said trump
The US “continue to consider the options in response to Iranian aggression.”
The United States will impose new sanctions against Iran. He did not specify any current limitations of the already draconian and do not leave much space for the tightening.
“Iran must abandon its nuclear ambitions and to stop supporting terrorism.”
It is time Russia, China, France, Germany and the UK followed the US to withdraw from the nuclear deal with Iran and start cooking a new one.
Need to involve NATO in the events in the middle East.
“The power of the armed forces of the United States has never been greater. Our missiles — big, accurate and fast. We create supersonic missiles. And we do not seek, do not want to use them. The strength of the US — military and economic — the best tool of deterrence.”
Republicans in Congress have publicly supported the statements of the US President, calling his speech Donald trump “balanced and peaceful.”
“Retaliation only for the sake of retaliation was not needed, there was killed not a single American,” said broadcaster al-bi-si, the influential Republican Senator Lindsey Graham.
Another close supporter of US President Congressman mark Meadows said that the White house has made it clear to the world that “America prefers the possibility of de-escalation, not war”.
Congressional Democrats, in turn, continue to insist that the peace-loving rhetoric trump cannot be regarded as a guarantee that the US will not start a full-scale military conflict in the middle East.
“Congress needs to fully regain the powers granted by the Constitution, and restrict the rights of the President of the United States so that he could not declare war, not after winning the approval of Congress,” said one of the leaders of the democratic majority in the House of representatives David Cicilline.
