President Trump has told a top GOP allies in the Senate that he believes a deal could be made with Iran moving forward.
According to The Hill:
President Trump has told one of his top Senate Republican allies that he sees the exchange of missile strikes between the United States and Iran as an opportunity to begin new negotiations with Iran now that President Obama’s Iran nuclear agreement has been discarded.
Trump also signaled that he’s leaning toward negotiation instead of additional military action to respond to Iran firing more than 20 missiles at two U.S. military bases in Iran early Wednesday.
Trump told Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) Tuesday night that he is now ready to negotiate with Iran and indicated he does not plan further military strikes against the Islamic republic.
“I had occasion to talk to the president last night at nine o’clock. He has very good feelings about this that no Americans at that time — now it’s been confirmed — no Americans were killed,” Inhofe said.
Since the 2016 campaign, President Trump has expressed his willingness to strike a deal different from Obama’s deal with the country.
