But I will tell you, that was a very large attack and it could be met with an attack many, many times larger very easily by our country. But we're going to find out who definitively did it first.
Can we clarify, Mr President, so you said that you think Iran is responsible for the attack. Do you think...
I didn't say that. Why do you say that? I said that we think we know who it was, but I didn't say anybody. But certainly it would look to most like it was Iran. But I did not say it the way you said it.
Do I want war? I don't want war with anybody. I'm somebody that would like not to have war. We have the strongest military in the world. We've spent more than a trillion and a half dollars in the last short period of time when our military, nobody's even come close.
There's nobody that has the F-35, we have the best fighter jets, the best rockets, the best missiles, the best equipment. But with all of that being said, we'd certainly like to avoid it.
Two and a half to three years ago, they were causing a lot of trouble, and we'll see what happens. But we'll let you know definitively, as you know, there are ways to see definitively where they came from, and we have all of those ways, and that's being checked out right now.
Well, you know, there were always conditions because the conditions, if you look at it, the sanctions are not going to be taken off. So if the sanctions, that's a condition, so, you know, that's why the press misreported it. The biggest thing you can talk about are the sanctions, and the sanctions are massive. There's never been sanctions put on a country like that, and I think they have a tremendous future, but not the way they're behaving. We'll see what happens in terms of this attack. Secretary Pompeo and others will be going over to Saudi Arabia at some point to discuss what they feel. They're going to make a statement fairly soon. But they also know something that most people don't know as to where it came from, who did it, and we'll be able to find that out, and figure that out very quickly. We pretty much already know.
