Our embassy in Baghdad got hit Sunday by several rockets. Three rockets failed to launch. Guess where they were from: IRAN. Now we hear chatter of additional attacks against Americans in Iraq...

The doctors just *cannot* Baghdad Bob their way through the president's active and ongoing hospitalization. That smiling "He's not on oxygen right now" dance?? It's a *bad thing* for the US if the world knows reports on the president's condition can't be trusted. Shameful.

Iraqi security official tells @NBCNews  there has been anther US airstrike, this one north of Baghdad targeting Shiite militia leaders. Reports of 6 killed. This right BEFORE a big Shiite protest tomorrow in Baghdad. It seems certain to provoke an escalation.

Team Obama overthrew Qaddafi, failed to protect our Benghazi embassy, lied about it, and withdrew. Then they tried to bribe the Iranian terrorist regime without any strings attached. Now they have advice after Trump defended the Baghdad embassy and killed Soleimani. No.

As usual, the killing of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard general is being used by Democrats for political purposes. The man was not in the Baghdad airport changing planes to go to Paris. He was there directing the violent attacks on the US Embassy by Iranian proxies.

The attack on our embassy in Baghdad is horrifying but predictable. Trump has rendered America impotent in the Middle East. No one fears us, no one listens to us. America has been reduced to huddling in safe rooms, hoping the bad guys will go away. What a disgrace.

Dem Presidential candidates fell over themselves to disapprove Trump’s action killing Suleimani. So if you vote any of them into office and an attack is launched on American soil, as with our Embassy in Baghdad, now you know how they'll respond. No thanks!

President Trump’ s targeted attack on the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard while he was in Baghdad was symbolically a perfect measured response to the escalating Iranian provocations. It hurt the dictatorship profoundly while avoiding wholesale combat. Well done!

Watching the situation in Baghdad closely. Our patriotic diplomats, servicemembers and the U.S. Embassy deserve protection from the Iraqi host government and smart, strong national security strategy from U.S. leaders. Escalation and violence must end.

And Lebanon and Baghdad and Beirut and Mexico and the rest of the entire world. You're in my prayers no matter where you are. I'm so sorry.
