" Then they shot down an unmanned drone. And they claim it was over their territory, which it was not, but they would say it, so they also say unmanned and over their territory, then we go in.
"Before I sent them out, they had to give me everything I wanted to know at seven o'clock. They went in, they gave me everything, but they didn't tell me how many people would die. How many Iranians "I know many Iranians from New York City and they are good people. They are all good people. All was well, right? Iranian or not." Trump continued and explained why he canceled the plan after learning that at least 150 people could be killed.
"I said," I don't like it. I don't like it, "and I stopped it," he said. "I did it – we didn't send them out, you know there was a little incorrect reporting. It was just like we sent them out and we pulled them, but we didn't. I didn't – I made the final decision not Doing it.
"I built a lot of big capital, and if something happens, we are able to do much worse by not doing it. But hopefully we don't have to do anything. "
Trump then took action against former President Barack Obama's nuclear agreement with the country and confirmed his commitment to stopping Iran from getting a nuclear weapon." "Iran now, when we dismissed the terrible deal, which was a truly horrible agreement, and you know that you and I are not so different in terms of struggle, we will have peace, "said Trump to Carlson.
" We want to build our paths and build our schools and build all those things we want to build. But we can't let Iran have a nuclear weapon … you can't let Iran have a nuclear weapon, and you can't let some other countries have nuclear weapons. It's too devastating. "Last month, Iran had threatened to exceed the stock restriction whose world powers failed to negotiate new terms of the nuclear agreement developed by the Obama administration in July 2015 but significantly weakened when the Trump administration resigned in May 2018 and restored paralyzing sanctions Many European countries have repeatedly called on Iran to comply with the agreement.
