Trump once said Obama would start war with Iran “to get elected”

Donald Trump once said that Barack Obama would start a war with Iran, it has emerged.

In a now ironic tweet posted in 2011, the President said that Obama would increase tensions with the country for electoral success. He said: “In order to get elected, Barack Obama will start a war with Iran.”


Today, Donald Trump ordered an air strike on Iran which killed military commander General Qasem Soleimani. Iran officials have said that the country will retaliate and have accused the US of “terrorism”.

During Obama’s premiership, the then President did not start a war with Iran.

Whether the impeached President’s words will come back to haunt him remains to be seen.
