"We suffered no casualties. All of our soldiers are safe and only minimal damage was sustained at our military bases," the U.S. president said and added that "Iran appears to be standing down."
Trump reaffirmed his interpretation of the current Middle East situation and indicated that the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani was a necessary action to stop terrorism.
“Last week we eliminated the world’s top terrorist,” he stressed.
He also announced that more "powerful sanctions" will be implemented to force a change in behavior in Iran, a country to which he blames for creating "hell" in Yemen, Afghanistan, and other Middle Eastern countries. However, he did not provide details on what those new sanctions would be.
In the early hours of Wednesday, in response to the assassination of General Soleimani, Iran launched ballistic missiles against two military bases housing U.S. troops in Iraq.
"The first Iranian response to the assassination of the martyr commander Soleimani has happened," said Iraqi militia chief, Qais al Khazali, who added that "since the Iraqis are brave and jealous, their response will not be less than that of Iran. That is a promise."
Iran's Armed Forces Chief of Staff Mohammad Bagheri said that his country will respond "more overwhelmingly and decisively" if Washington takes new military actions.
On Wednesday, the U.S. President's first reaction was to minimize the importance of the Iranian attack on his country's military bases in the Middle East.
"All is well! Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq. Assessment of casualties & damages taking place now. So far, so good! We have the most powerful, and well-equipped military anywhere in the world, by far! I will be making a statement tomorrow morning," Trump tweeted.
To those tweeting "#IvotedforHillaryClinton as if it's anti-war. She would have been just as warmongering toward Iran. She destroyed Libya, and funded Al Qaeda in #Syria. Both the democrats and your republics are controlled by Israel.
