Trump Blames Obama For Giving Iran Funds To Buy Missiles Used Against US
Days after Iran sent balistic missiles on two Iraqi military facilitiess that housed troops of the United States (US), President Donald Trump has made series of remarks.
One of the comments made by Trump is that no soldier died in the atack, although the Iranian authorities have said that at least 20 US officials were among the casualties, Daily Mail reports.
Added to this, the US president has said that he has reasons to blame the administration of Barack Obama for the attack.
5 key things Trump said after the Iran strikes
He said that the nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers (US) inclusive, afforded Tehran the funds with which it bought the missiles used in the attack.
Referring to the deal as ‘very defective’, Trump called on Britain, France, Germany, and Russia to break away from it.

The US president on Wednesday, January 8, said no Americans or Iraqis were harmed in the attack, adding that the bases had minimal damage.
Trump also said Iran “appeared to be standing down” just as he said that the US is ready to embrace.
He, however, vowed to impose new sanctions on Iran as a result of the retaliatory attack. He said the “powerful sanctions” will remain until Iran changes its behaviour.
“The United States will immediately impose additional punishing economic sanctions on the Iranian regime,” Trump was quoted to have said.
