Trump Says He Halted U.S. Military Response On Iran Because Was 'Not Proportionate'

U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday said he blocked a planned military strike against Iran.

Trump saying a strike would not have been a proportionate response to Tehran’s downing of an unmanned U.S. surveillance drone.

The president adding that more sanctions were imposed late on Thursday.

β€œ10 minutes before the strike I stopped it, not proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone.
