President Donald Trump says he’s in ‘no hurry’ to confront Iran.

President Donald Trump on Friday explained his abrupt decision to call off U.S. airstrikes against Iranian targets, saying 150 people would have died and that he’s in “no hurry” for confrontation with Tehran amid rising tensions.


In a series of tweets, Trump said the U.S. military was “cocked and loaded” to hit three different sites in retaliation for Iran’s shooting down a U.S. drone. The president said he called off the strikes 10 minutes before they were scheduled to begin, after a general told him 150 people would die.
