Things are getting heated…
President Donald Trump stated that Iran is most probable to be liable for drone attacks on oil manufacturing in Saudi Arabia, but he would consult with Saudi authorities to plan a response.
During a trip with Bahrain’s Crown Prince, the president spoke to journalists at the Oval Office and debated what his reaction to the bombings would be.
Trump said it felt like Iran was accountable, but he refused to say it for good.
“Soon as we find out definitively, we’ll let you know, but it does look that way,” Trump said when asked if he thought Iran was responsible.
The president refused the rhetoric that he was looking for a military conflict with the responsible parties for the oil attacks, but reiterated that the U.S. was “more prepared than any country in history” for any strikes.
He said Saudi Arabia was a significant partner of trade and would organize a reaction to the assaults with them.
“They are very upset. They are very angry,” he said, referring to the Saudis. “We’re looking for the final checkpoints. And I think you won’t be surprised who did it.”
Trump stated that State Secretary Mike Pompeo and other representatives would be traveling to Saudi Arabia to address the assault and a suitable reaction.
He rejected the concept that he was willing to launch another Middle East military conflict.
“I don’t want war with anybody,” Trump said, adding that he would look to avoid military conflicts with Iran. “That was an attack on Saudi Arabia, that wasn’t an attack on us.”
