President Donald Trump's first public response to the killing of Iranian general Qassem Suleimani was tweeting out a pixelated image of the American flag, but his first public statement wasn't much more expansive.

The president ordered the killing of Suleimani in response to the Iran-backed siege of the U.S. embassy in Iraq, and he tweeted out a baffling statement Friday morning.

Other Twitter users were confused.
