Mike Pompeo: President Trump Does Not Want War with Iran

‘And we will continue to communicate that message while doing the things that are necessary to protect American interests in the region’

EXCERPT:

POMPEO: “President Trump had sent President Abe to take a message of his to the leadership in Iran. You have to remember, these are messages for the leadership. I think the Iranian people are being misserved by that leadership, but yes, we’re engaged in — we have been engaged in many messages, even this -- this moment right here, communicating to Iran that we are there to deter aggression. President Trump does not want war. And we will continue to communicate that message while doing the things that are necessary to protect American interests in the region."
