President Trump provided some moral clarity on Iran, following the twin attacks on two Iranian regime sites on Wednesday.
The President very clearly offered his condolences and prayers to the innocent victims and the people of Iran, while making it also clear that the Iranian government was not going to get a pass, and declared Iran a terror-sponsoring state which promotes evil around the world.
The terror-supporting state of Iran’s foreign minister response was to call Trump’s words “repugnant.”
The death toll from the attack has now risen to 17.

We grieve and pray for the innocent victims of the terrorist attacks in Iran, and for the Iranian people, who are going through such challenging times. We underscore that states that sponsor terrorism risk falling victim to the evil they promote.
