Trump also spoke about protesters swarming the US Embassy in Baghdad, following Sunday’s US airstrikes on Iran-backed militia fighters.

“I think it’s been handled very well,” he said, according to a pool report. “The Marines came in. We had some great warriors come in and do a fantastic job. And they were there instantaneously, as soon as we heard.”

“This will not be a Benghazi,” he continued.

He also backed of off previous harsh rhetoric regarding Iran; earlier in the day he tweeted, that Iran would “pay a very BIG PRICE” for damage to the US Embassy.

“I don’t think that would be a good idea for Iran,” he said according to a pool report. “It wouldn’t last very long. Do I want to? No. I want to have peace. I like peace. And Iran should want peace more than anybody.”
