If President Donald Trump has a plan to deal with Iran, U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich would like to hear it.
The New Mexico Democrat called on the administration “to outline a coherent plan to Congress and the public before matters get even worse” after the president’s remarks Wednesday following Iran’s missile attack against bases in Iraq that hosted U.S. and coalition troops.
The president indicated a possible deescalation of tensions with Iran with the missile strikes not involving casualties. Trump said he was open to negotiations with the Iranian leadership on a number of issues, including the development of nuclear weapons. He called for economic sanctions, but no further military strikes.
But Heinrich did not find the remarks reassuring.
