Trump justified the assassination of Iranian general Qassim Suleimani, whom he described as “the world’s top terrorist,” and pledged new sanctions against Iran, which he said appeared to be “standing down” after the missile attack.

He also claimed the missiles fired at U.S. forces, as well as previous terror attacks, had been paid for with money provided to Iran under the nuclear deal reached by Obama.

Trump called for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which he withdrew from in May 2018, to be replaced by a new deal.
