(AP) -- President Donald Trump is insisting "All is well!" after Iran fired missiles Tuesday at two Iraqi bases housing U.S. troops.
All is well! Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq. Assessment of casualties & damages taking place now. So far, so good! We have the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world, by far! I will be making a statement tomorrow morning.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 8, 2020
The president is promising to make a statement to the nation Wednesday morning about the increasingly precarious situation with Iran.
Trump is offering no immediate indication of whether he will retaliate. But he is tweeting that an assessment of casualties and damages is under way.
The initial outlook, he says, is "So far, so good!"
The Iranian missiles came in retaliation for an American drone strike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani.
