Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

"the threat from Iran is “on hold,”" How stupid do they believe we are?
Rewrite as "this fake Iran crisis has served its purpose and is now officially put in the pending tray"!

Quote:
Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan on Tuesday said the threat from Iran is “on hold,” after the deployment of additional U.S. military forces to the Persian Gulf region.

“I think our steps were very prudent and we’ve put on hold the potential for attacks on Americans and that is what is extremely important,” Shanahan told reporters at the Pentagon.

Asked to clarify whether he meant the threat from Iran was diminished or reduced, Shanahan replied, “There haven’t been any attacks on Americans. I would consider that a hold.”
