The U.S. Embassy in Iraq is, & has been for hours, SAFE! Many of our great Warfighters, together with the most lethal military equipment in the world, was immediately rushed to the site. Thank you to the President & Prime Minister of Iraq for their rapid response upon request....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 31, 2019
....Iran will be held fully responsible for lives lost, or damage incurred, at any of our facilities. They will pay a very BIG PRICE! This is not a Warning, it is a Threat. Happy New Year!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 31, 2019
The attacks on the embassy started today; but it was almost 8 hours between Trump's first tweet and his declaration that this isn't Benghazi.
The media reported that you visited Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach at 10:46 am, which you did. https://t.co/PyM2SsQeVT— George Conway (@gtconway3d) December 31, 2019
One former senior Trump administration official told me: “Pompeo has long dreaded having a Benghazi-type event on his watch and would be horrified if Americans died in a similar event, in part because of his criticism of Hillary Clinton during Benghazi." https://t.co/yWeBbitFzy— Daniel Lippman (@dlippman) December 31, 2019
Is North Korea going to "pay a very BIG PRICE!", too?When it comes to our national security, the bottom line on the twilight of 2019 is this: Americans are less safe under this president, at home and abroad. He mistakes aggression for strength, adversaries for allies, anger for promise & fear for respect. America deserves better.🇺🇸— Carrie Cordero (@carriecordero) December 31, 2019
But, but ... @realDonaldTrump said he and Kim “fell in love” and that “There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea.” #IMPOTUS #DimwittedNarcissist https://t.co/9eUjYo3vCc— George Conway (@gtconway3d) December 31, 2019
