President Trump said Tuesday he does not want, or foresee, war with Iran, after he earlier threatened to retaliate against the country following violent protests led by Iranian-backed militias at the US Embassy in Baghdad.
Asked about the possibility of tensions spiraling into a war with Iran, President Trump told reporters at his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida: “Do I want to? No. I want to have peace. I like peace. And Iran should want to have peace more than anybody. So I don’t see that happening.”
Have a terrific New Year Holiday Week
