President Trump to Address Nation From Oval Office Tonight Following Missile Attack From Iran …UPDATE: Postponed Until Morning

Update: President Trump will not be addressing the nation this evening as CNN previously reported.

Per two sources, President Trump is not giving an address tonight, NY Times reporter Maggie Haberman said.

President Trump will make a statement Wednesday morning following the missile attacks from Iran on US bases in Iraq.

Iran fired over 35 missiles onto US facilities in Iraq on Tuesday night (US time).

A third base was just hit with missiles in a second wave of attacks in what Iranians dubbed “Operation Martyr Soleimani.”

“It is clear that these missiles were launched from Iran,” Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman said in statement.

“As we evaluate the situation and our response, we will take all necessary measures to protect and defend U.S. personnel, partners, and allies in the region.”

“We are aware of the reports of attacks on US facilities in Iraq. The President has been briefed and is monitoring the situation closely and consulting with his national security team,” White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said.

President Trump warned Iran that he has 52 targets if Iran were to strike any American or American target.
