‘So far, so good!’ Trump tweets of US military might, set to address Americans on Wednesday over Iranian strike

US President Donald Trump has weighed in after a series of Iranian missile strikes on American bases in Iraq, noting that a damage and casualty assessment looks “good” so far.

“All is well! Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq. Assessment of casualties & damages taking place now,” Trump said, adding that he would make a statement to the nation on Wednesday morning.

The missive was the president’s first tweet in several hours, after spending much of Tuesday retweeting hawkish lawmakers pushing for a harder line on Iran following an American assassination strike on a top Iranian general, Qassem Soleimani, last week.

Earlier on Tuesday evening, CNN had reported that Trump was set to make a national address, but the White House press office shot down the report as “irresponsible.”
